My work is based on my personal connection with the Spirit. Through what is otherwise unknown and unseen, my work is a visual representation of what is felt and experienced through faith. Through the use of active brush strokes, intensity of color, draping of fabrics, vertical and horizontal movement of line and shade, coupled with sharp diagonal staccato lines and a tight format, my work seeks to order the chaos of daily life much like religious rituals of prayer, meditation, and rosary that comforts and calms us. The strong belief that a higher power can comfort, restore, and deliver us from the pain of human existence is the ultimate faith that the chaos that we experience can be controlled through love and belief. As an artist, I seek to reveal the messiness of the human condition at the moment we call on our faith to deliver us from it. The paintings and drawings then, become a sacred place of being, of seeing, and of experiencing that which makes us human.
