My paintings reflect various personal spiritual experiences
through new artistic concepts and methods. I often use a mixture
of traditional and modern interpretations of the Bible to symbolize
its events and characters with unconventional images.
I enjoy creating simple compositions with vibrant colors and rough
textures. Texture is created with materials such as wire, tile glue,
paper and aluminum foil affixed to the canvas prior to painting. Paint
is applied through a layering method, working from a black background
up to increasingly brilliant colors.
I minimize the use of white to keep the colors pure and powerful, like
the messages I
seek to convey.
