"I live my life in vivid color and put all of that emotion into gorgeous, colorfully stained works of art on wood. They are titled with songs to fuel my soul and ease my mind."
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.
Abstract brings my world and your world together by allowing each individual to see and feel their own story. Primary emotions of a color-infused visual are followed with secondary emotions evoked by “hearing” the music or remembering the lyrics from select pieces’ carefully researched song titles. This art will connect you to the experience of a memory in another time in your head and heart each time you view it.
I enjoy physical representation at Woodland Studios in Stoughton, WI and online gallery representation with the Gallery of Wisconsin Art of West Bend, WI.
