Revealing is part of a series I created when I began to discover the true artist in myself and the first time I developed my technique with texture. As a self-taught artist I taught myself how to mix paint, mediums and create the beautiful texture on the canvas that I began to love. I was drawn to the different shades of blue and amazed by the texture through abstract. Revealing is a special piece in the beginning of my art life and represents the artist being revealed inside of me.
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.
