Artist Statement:

My art, especially my graffiti/typography work, is a compilation of the events that have occurred in my life and the emotions that have accompanied them. My work conveys the themes and messages that I want to communicate. I consider my works to be a visual diary, a mantra of thoughts to the people I love. Nothing is perfect and the pursuit of our goals often leads us down paths unexpected, but that’s the process. The unexpected is my challenge – releasing control. Not everything is clear in my paintings – or in life. I invite the viewer to find their own personal connection in a string of words. I use the color, size and negative space on and between the words and figures to infuse emotions and feelings into the canvas.

Many of my works use bold color and drips. The drips, splashes and sprays of paint represent an urban feel and lack of control that bring my pieces to life. I use free form writing and stencils to show a freedom and constraint for thoughts I want to convey. My beliefs and experiences regarding empowered women, religion and very personal learning disabilities play key roles in my paintings. Letters and numbers of all different sizes, fonts and hand writing illustrate the uneven roads that we all travel.
