Ready to Hang
I paint abstracts because it allows the simplicity of emotion, color and texture to be showcased without the obstruction of needing to be seen as anything else. My process is fueled by a specific idea that overwhelms the canvas with emotion. I love working with the depth provided by rich jewel tones and the mystery derived from metallic paints. My truest intent reveals itself when I work with the physicality of sponge dabs, the sprinkling of gold leaf, and large, sweeping brush strokes that cover the canvas. When a canvas has me moving, sweating and covered in paint just to keep up with the level of inspiration it has inspired, that's when I know that something larger than myself is taking form, and a life of its own is about to be born. I believe in the transformative power of art.
I am an abstract artist from central California. I'm inspired by the diverse colors, textures and perspectives around me to create works of art that convey distinct emotions. I believe that the right expression will find its voice on the canvas, and that the right piece of art will not only speak to us, but transform our spaces and our lives with it's unique energy.
