"Words cannot describe my art. Emotions tell a bigger story. I tell my stories through vivid color inspired by all forms of nature, my imagination and music."
I like to create art with a magnetic appeal. Art that draws you in. It says “Come closer. Tell me what you see. Tell me how you feel. I want to be what you need me to be.” Gestural abstraction is my chosen discipline because of the freedom I feel painting loosely using my emotions. My intent is to evoke from every sense. Joy, curiosity, maybe even dark. I achieve incredible depth in my work...
... and bring a little more of my soul into each painting by titling the pieces with song. My love of music is only surpassed by my love of art.
Visual inspiration is a beautiful garden, breathtaking sunsets or a fabulous landscape. When creating on wood panels, the grain of the wood is oftentimes inspiration alone.
I am currently one of a few artists in the country creating fine art on wood panels with colored stains. The stain is applied directly to bare wood and my hands are my biggest paintbrush. On occasion I work with a brush for detail and for accenting my pieces with alcohol ink or pigment. Some pieces are custom framed, others are on cradled wood. I also paint with watercolor and gouache - all abstractly.
