                          Artist Statement

 

     

    The painting process plays an important role in my art. There is a biographical quality of each brushstroke that is placed on the canvas. Each day as I approach the canvas on my easel there is a different emotion running through my veins, a different outlook on the image, the material and my life. 

  The strategies that I use to communicate my ideas are simple. I use imagery from south Louisiana such as oysters, birds, nests, food, and textures found in my environment to strike a connection with my audience. I have a fascination with our culture, daily life, and what separates this area that I live from the rest of the world. My work documents similarly to how a journal records daily events about the life we all live here on the bayou. By using my life experiences as an example my goal is that you the viewer will see your own reflection within each painting and feel the love of our home.
