"As artists, we are first taught the basic rules and techniques of painting, and it is with this knowledge that we convey our understanding of the world, as we see it, on a flat surface. However, at some point, I reached a place in my life where I could no longer ignore my need to let go, to metaphorically color outside the lines. Abstract painting is a means of artistic expression and is often associated with words like creativity, harmony, balance, unity and originality; things we also strive for in our lives. This genre of art, this experience in my life, has been liberating and enlightening. The transforming feeling sparked by self-expression has empowered me as a person and has made it possible for me to truly call my work, my life, my own."
