Hello! Thanks for stopping by and learning a bit more about me and my art. I am an artist, a creative. I love to create.
I love to explore and experiment with paint and mark
making and collage. I am searching and finding my way as I paint and create my art. I paint to express myself, to play, to wonder, to experiment, to know myself, to dig deep and ever deeper. I paint because I love to paint. It feels like magic.
My art work is mixed media. The works are intriguing abstract explorations of color, movement, texture and line. There is usually no real representation. My hope is your eye wanders into and around each painting. Standing back you'll see color, light and dark, movement and flow. As you move in closer there are little details hidden everywhere bringing mystery and depth.
I create my work on wood panels, canvas or paper. I work in acrylic paint, usually with bits of applied paper that I have painted or other found papers. I also add other marks using pencil, crayon, charcoal and/or oil pastels. Each day when I go to
my studio I don't know what I am going to paint or what will
show up in my work. That not-knowing, the experimenting, the
searching and the play, the learning, is in the exploration of the
media and that is the magic. I learn as I paint.
The deeper I search and find my way the more I discover my own true expression. Some days the work just flows, Some days the work is work. Some days the work is wonderful. some days it is hard work. All of the work, good, bad and mediocre, is important to me as I evolve as an artist. I love to paint. I love the magic.
