Full Artist's statement
For me, color is everything. Color comes before shape and form. It creates the space, dimension and most importantly, the feelings. I consider myself a colorist in that sense. While specific palettes come naturally to me, I have realized that they don't necessarily follow classical color theories. My art comes from my subconscious and, hopefully, viewers of my paintings will discover what is in their subconscious. Listening to what others see in my paintings, I am continually surprised by our common collective memory.
