ARTIST STATEMENT - I have grown up with an appreciation for art. My mother is an artist and as a young child I would watch her paint. She knew one day that I would become an artist. She remembers on family beach trips I would draw in the sand for hours. Now my appreciation has turned into my passion & career that I love.
I am inspired by masters such as Gaugin, Klimt, Modigliani & Matisse. My work has been exploring mixed media abstracts, abstract landscapes & figure work ranging from small to large scale.
Depending on what I am working on decides my mindset. For my figure work the process is more precise, for my abstracts I have a general idea of what I think the result will be, but the colors & texture dictate the final piece. Most of my work is mixed media - acrylic or oil paint, molding paste & charcoal on canvas or gesso board. Metal leafing is also used to create illumination, texture & richness.
