Rough Draft of Statement

For once in my life I feel as if I have found my voice through my art. The viewer is no longer in the shadows searching to find meaning in my piece, but are touched and moved by my work. They are able to interact with my thoughts and my feelings towards the world. But I feel I am Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, one moment my artwork takes on a simple loving feeling, while the next is more sinister and darker than ever before.

It is through this sinister side that I am able to create art that I have always wanted to create. I don’t feel like I have to hold back in my work. I believe it is from having a normal childhood and family that I have become interested in the dysfunctional world that surrounds us. I am interested in the topics that have been noticed but are swept under the rug.

I am no longer softly whispering but I am screaming at the top of my lungs. I feel free to explore and investigate my artwork. I have found a niche that I want to explore further until there is nothing left to explore and I must move on to the next niche for my work. Through this exploration my work has gradually molded me into the artist I want to be, an artist with meaning and true intentions.
