Painting is the way in which I talk to the world. My art is birthed from a deep desire to reveal  inner revelations so the subject matter, medium and purpose changes. I use buttery oil pastel in a fauvistic manner blending a bright color palette with impressionism's emphasis on subject matter in space. The vibrancy of hue in oil pastels really speak to my inner enthusiast.  I do have very specific periods in my work where I am inspired by a palette or person and I challenge myself by making series of works in hopes of capturing my muse.
