Dramatic piece with rich colors
Painting, for me is a journey a bit like traveling to a place that I’ve never been. I have a preconceived notion of what it’s going to be like, but when I get there it’s completely different. Each time I place a blank canvas in front of me, I have an idea of where I’m going with it, but it always differs from my original idea. I love the surprise! I love to play with composition and color, always refining, changing and creating as I work my way through a piece. My approach to painting is an exploration of line, form and color. I alternate between layering and scraping away. I love color, and how layers of paint tell a story. I create from both intuition and from the energy and inspiration that I absorb from the world around me. I find myself in control of certain aspects, but completely out of control of others. Those out of control moments often create what I refer to as “a happy accident”. These are those elements that perpetually surprise me. I love the surprise! My style of art is described as modern abstract and most of my work has been influenced by abstract expressionism. I want the viewer to experience their own individual perception of my work. Part of the enjoyment of abstract art is that each viewer sees something different. Each viewer has a different emotion. It means something different to each person that sees it. I always hope the viewer enjoys my work as much as I enjoy creating it. And just maybe I will take them on a journey somewhere where they have never been.
