Painting gives me much joy. To paint my vision I experiment with color, shape, and texture. The possibilities are limitless when I can combine acrylics, watercolor, inks, textures, mediums, and found objects. The experimentation is fun and the end result is exciting.
For me, it’s all about color. Color is complicated and emotional. It allows me to bring meaning to a piece in a very subjective way, and draw attention to details and nuances that we miss in our busy, hectic lives. Nature, and nature’s ability to overcome, inspires me. My joy comes from people interacting with my work and then seeing something they’ve never noticed before, such as how light reflects off fur or how beautiful rust can be. We live in an amazing world, and I share subjects of happenstance and fleeting moments captured by good fortune.
