As an abstract artist, I am on a creative journey with no final destination. I continue to grow and explore as each piece becomes a new adventure, a new discovery, an emotion, a capture of a moment in time, a naturally organic environment or an industrially manipulated event. I like to invite the viewers to find a piece of my work they can connect with and share the same experience that I enjoyed in creating it.
While creating my paintings, I always remember the basic elements and principles instilled in me early on as an art student, line, shape, color, form, space, rhythm, etc., but have never been opposed to breaking the “rules” whenever I get the notion to do so. I am currently working in acrylics, pastels, mixed media and collage and pens and ink are always within reach when I decide to incorporate them into a piece.
I’ve done numerous landscapes, portraits and still life pieces for show and sale over the years but have always been partial to abstract and have, for the most part, settled in to and have become very comfortable with the freedom that is so fulfilling to the creative processes, the ability to let the design come from within myself rather than the familiar predictability of a scene viewed and mirrored to paper or canvas.
