Feelings and emotions cannot always be expressed in words. There are those that cry in silence and those that celebrate intimately. Her Psalm was created with fierce emotion and then sacred bible verses were placed onto the canvas with heavy impasto to seal the emotion with faith, hope and then peace. Her Psalm tells a story of fierce emotion that is silenced by faith.
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.
