"I live in vivid color and put all of that emotion of my life into gorgeous stained colorful wood works of art titled with songs to fuel my soul and ease my mind."
Words cannot describe my art. Emotions tell a bigger story. I tell these stories through vivid color, all forms of nature, my imagination and music. My “Second Touch” from God has arrived and my lifetime longing to be who I was meant to be is fulfilled. My art is unique because I create abstractly with vibrantly colored stains on wood. Most always, I use only my hands. I enjoy the...
... transformation of a piece of wood from simple, timeless and organic to vibrant, colorful and alive via its natural grain. Joy exudes from my pores as I feel the wood, push and caress the stain and fuel my soul. My intention is to create dimension, movement and ultimately, unique, emotionally charged works of art that have touched every sense.
Visual inspiration comes from a beautiful garden brimming with loads of color, breathtaking sunsets bursting with orange, the subtle but sublime metallic golds and coppers in Raku pottery, the magnificent Rainbow Eucalyptus tree or the beaming contrast and glitter of colorful elements of nature such as geodes. When creating on wood, the grain of the wood itself drives this art and is perfect inspiration alone.
Abstract brings my world and your world together by allowing each individual to see and feel their own story. The secondary emotion evoked by “hearing” the music or remembering the lyrics from the piece’s carefully researched song title will allow you to continue to experience the art in your head and heart each time you view it.
