My abstract expressionist artwork is a reflection of my soul. The idea of expression is a reflection of life experiences' a combination of inner and outer world influences.
The work is often a spontaneous response to my environment, nature and experiences from my life past and present. I have a unique relationship with color; it is my mantra. Sometimes it reflects nature and is purposefully chosen and at other times it may depend simply on the available colors in my studio. My paintings are often mixed media beginning with acrylic and ending with oil and sometimes I use collage, photo transfer or gold leaf to communicate a specific idea or thought.
I usually work two to four hours daily in the studio; it varies from three to four days a week. I usually work on two or more works simultaneously as my creative thoughts readily change and I find I may go back and work on things that I thought were finished but were not. I enjoy working on multi size works but the large works often give me ample opportunity to explore my mark and challenge my design mind for creative thinking. I enjoy the process of working in a series that allows opportunity to make a statement or to work through new materials and/or techniques. After spending the last year and a half in a studio I have learned to pace myself and I spend more time thinking and looking at my work. It takes time to do this and so some days are merely thinking days. I usually research other artists that inspire me and I enjoy seeing their processes evolve. Many thanks for the artists who continue to inspire me, some living and others who have passed whose legacy I will always be grateful for.
It has always been my desire that the viewer takes away a new visual experience, something unique from viewing my art. I am always open to answering questions or listening to their thoughts. My hope is to continue to express significant content through the creative process that has a universal impact and appeal.
