Not your traditional string quartet! In this scene, I sought to portray the musicians' arms, fingers, bodies, and faces melding together with the wood, strings, and bows of the violins, viola, and cello as the music created weaves in and out and up and down, swirling into a feast for the senses.
Oh! Now I see it! -- my favorite reaction of viewers of my art. Using a combination of painting and drawing techniques, I brush, spatter, splash, scrape, and scribble a plain white canvas into a symphony of color. With my hyper-expressive techniques, I try to put you in touch with the energy within my subjects, which could be a musician filling the air with a melody or a herd of wild mustangs thundering down a hillside. Many of my clients have noticed that my personal style has evolved from a loose realism into what resembles a combination of the techniques of my two favorite artists, one from post-impressionism and the other from abstract expressionism. I like to call the style, Vincent van Pollock. I am a native Texan and live in the Dallas area. My formal art training took place in Austin, Texas where I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Texas. Other interests of mine are playing and singing Bluegrass music, and songwriting.
