The Good Garden
mixed media on canvas
38 x 32 in.

My paintings are intended to push the limits of the imagination with bold color, strong line, and fiery strokes. I use lines in my paintings as visual representations of the thread that spiritually connects us to one another and all that is living, and color as a signifier for the masses and as a catalyst for healing the effects of racism and separatism. In painting in this fashion, my mission is to pull viewers into a bigger picture, beyond themselves in order to realize our original connection. I paint from my heart and soul, and I know that I am merely a vehicle for the expressions of the creator of all. Media include paint, textiles, paper, canvas, ink, pastels, graphite, stone, wood, glass, plastic, metal, sand and found objects.
