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 remembers on family beach trips I would draw in the sand for hours and knew one day that I would become an artist. Now my appreciation has turned into my passion & career that I love.
Continually inspired by environment & rhythms of nature, my work explores abstracts, abstract landscapes & figure work, communicating in a mysterious, ethereal manner, creating glowing illumination of color & use of texture such as gator/croc & snake to give pieces dimension.
Depending on what I am working on decides my mindset. For my figure work the process is more precise, for my abstracts and landscapes blending, layering of colors and the use od texture is a big proponet of my process. In the end I want the painting to glow & be the centerpiece of the room. A variety of mediums - acrylic, molding paste, compressed charcoal, graphite and metal leafing is used to create illumination & richness.
My work is in public and private collections throughout the United States & Europe.
