Fliegen is to fly. My circle paintings are created with meditation in mind, to transport the viewer to a safe and supported space in time. One that is filled with love, hope and a peaceful state of being. I am a Commissioned Artist and Live Painter/Performing Artist based in Denver, Colorado. I work as 'green' as I possibly can, by recycling canvases, paint, collage materials and whatever else I can get my hands on. I also provide various artist services such as portrait commissions, mural work, table and bar tops. My work historically has been influenced by Picasso and Gauguin and most definitely Modigliani, but more recently by Frida Kahlo and Basquiat. Most of my work is figurative in nature, but my deepest focus has always been on color and texture. I use materials that build up the surface of my canvases so that the color can jump out at the viewer. I can paint any subject matter for commissions, but most often paint figures, faces, eyes, orbs, moons, landscapes and poppies.
