Artist Statement

I delved into art a bit later in life than many. My interest tends to vary and with the various course requirements for a Fine Arts Degree, I have found so many art mediums with which to express myself. I enjoy the ability to employ skills and techniques from different mediums while working in others! My work is mainly composed of a collection of thoughts, emotions, experiences, and other influences  that "resonate within me."



So why the name "Neo Alchemy Arts"?


Neo for a new or revived form. Alchemy, the Medieval predecessor of Chemistry a science of mixture and reaction. Arts for the multiple disciplines and mediums of art from which I work. Simply "Neo Alchemy Arts" is me as an artist who likes to create new works of art from a mixture of influences and inspiration and through a variety of mediums.
