My art is a personal diary of color, form and texture that gives insight to the world as I see and reflect it. I have been gifted with the ability to translate energy and feeling into art that radiates back to the viewer. My work is guided by intuition and emotion, so the color and content of each piece feels as unique as the day on which it was created.
The immediacy and freshness of abstract acrylic as well as its complexity and boldness have always spoken to me. I paint in an Abstract Expressionist style, meaning that nothing was planned beforehand, and it all arose in a spontaneous and physical way.
I start by introducing texture to the canvas with modeling paste and gesso being brushed, dripped, pasted and thrown onto the surface. I read and interpret the developing canvas before bringing in appropriate swaths of color and scrubbing the pigments to reveal rich textures. This process of adding and removing continues as more color, shape and lines emerge, creating multiple layers and depth. The work pushes and pulls itself to completion.
I have had the good fortune to travel extensively across the globe, giving me the opportunity of capturing photographic vignettes and feeding my imagination for future expressions on canvas. My work is informed by my design background yet inspired by the beauty I have seen in my travels, the love expressed in my family, and the world from all vantage points.
