As ashes fly off of an autumn campfire and begin to move above you, leaving to dance aloft the celestial stars.
I have spent my life emerging from the Hotel Gallery, located in Tipp City which is an environment that embraces and encourages art from several aspects. My studio is also located in town just around the corner from my parent’s gallery. I enjoy the abstract appearance as I believe life is abstract as well; undefined and spontaneously occurring. Most of my pieces have a natural expression which is representational of the manner of which I produce them. I cannot help but be captivated by the creative beauty around us- which we can see every day: in the landscapes, the trees, the birds, the people, and the sky. All of these aspects derive the energy from the deep romances of nature around us and encourage me as I paint. Just as the Great Spirit has instilled a unique drive within each of us, each painting reveals a spirit that varies from each observer to the other. That is what makes these paintings unique- they allow freedom of imagination to the viewer and remind us that striving for flawlessness essentially limits ourselves. Instead we must see flaws as their own perfection. So that we may learn to embrace the rare pieces in our lives, for they are what will truly express ourselves and set us apart from the conventional. Abstract watercolor is a limitless expression, unique to the beauty within the eyes of each beholder. Behold Beauty.
