Without light there is no color. Like Oil and water they are interdependent. I represent the reflections, refractions and atmosphere created by light through the use of color. Through oil and water media I break light into a color spectrum through strokes, layers and chunks of paint. I portray the world around me and exploit its importance through the colors of light and shadow. My impressions are a patchwork of moments, which serve as illuminated manuscripts of a simple life, while commenting tont he hypocrisies of our abundant society.
