Through the medium of colored pencils and pastels, I seek to use color, texture, and form to create a visually stimulating image and evoke emotion. I also explore the range of possibilities allowed through different methods of application. It is also a way for me to develop my own unique artistic voice. Most importantly, the work has to resonate with me. Art is an extension of my soul. Creating takes me on a pleasurable journey linking imagination and reality into one. The ideas are often so insistent inside me that I must create or explode. Scholastically, I am drawn to Impressionism, and Expressionism.
Do or do not. There is no try.”
