“I am drawn toward emotion and feeling in art, so I have always used that as a guide to my work. I call myself an expressionist. I have a creative direction I want to go and my style will slowly evolve in different ways as it is influenced by other artists’ work I study and admire. Their work excites and pushes me, yet I always come back to doing it my way.”
