Prior to my formal education in art, I primarily painted abstractly. These works were very expressive but had little to no representational images.
Since I began studying at PrattMWP in 2009, and now at Empire State College, I have learned the value of incorporating the figure, objects and landscapes into my work. This has been a source of artistic discovery for me.
It has also allotted me a way to integrate additional layers of meaning into my work. Additionally, it has given me tools to reach a greater aesthetic potential.
The pieces in this show are a result of what I have learned.
