ARTIST STATEMENT Intrigued by the play of light on objects and the reflections created, the bounce colors make on their surroundings and the patterns and shapes, I incorporate these elements to add an abstractionism to the realism of my paintings. "I like to express my own interpretation of the world around me. I want my paintings to beckon the viewer from across the room to come closer
and discover that the sum of the parts is greater than the whole".
