Artist Statement

 My work reflects my faith in God, love of nature, positive outlook on life and childlike exuberance. I choose bright colors to give my work a happy, uplifting quality. 3D elements are often incorporated into my paintings to further express my playful nature.

    

My newest works are in a style I originated that I call “In-Depth 3-D.” This innovative new style of painting needs to be viewed to fully understand. My art as is a visual story. Exactly what that story is will be different for each viewer.   


Acrylic is my main media with mixed media elements added to all of my 3D and In Depth 3D artwork. My signature is a raised, heart seal with the initial “E” in the center. I chose this as my signature because my family is descended from royalty and signatures originated from the king’s signet ring that was used to make a seal on official documents. My “seal” is affixed to my artwork to authenticate my work.
