Ready to Hang
Freedom is a three canvas painting that can be hung side by side or with space slightly between each canvas. I created Freedom during a time when I began to learn about meditation and freeing my subconscious mind from old belief systems. The foundation of this creation is calm and serene and the top layer is created with heavy impasto. Like most of my paintings, you can feel the texture on the canvas. When I look at Freedom I see the stillness of our earth and a soul that has broken free for higher consciousness.
I paint large acrylic paintings in an abstract expressionistic style. As a self-taught artist, I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. As far back as I can remember, I demonstrated a love for art, experimenting as a young child with clay and watercolors, eventually settling on acrylic as my medium of choice. My work is heavily textured as I favor a strong impasto technique to help my paintings come to life. I find the painting process mysterious as I tend to get lost in the rich colors, using them to evoke emotions in the work of art. I enjoy using various acrylic mediums and gels to create surfaces that are rich in texture. The complete cycle of creating for me is a process of releasing to share, so that others may interpret the work as they choose. My paintings are the products of much contemplation, drawing on emotions that are then transferred on to the blank canvas to form a work of art that is direct interpretation of my inward temperament.
