Art for me is a way to free my mind and when one views my paintings, it is meant to be not just seen but felt. The use of acrylic paint with gel allows my paintings to jump off the canvas and come alive resulting in a sculptural, three-dimensional appearance. My feelings and moods will guide the mix of colors and the temperament of the paintings that I complete. . I have always been a very passionate person and my expression of art is no different. My art opens a window to me and each person who gets to view and share in my paintings gets to see a piece of me.
When my artwork is viewed up close the layers of colors have seem to have no apparent purpose or reason but the more distance and perspective you attain from the canvas you begin to understand and see the depths of the shape, message and idea I try to portray unfold. The intention is to give the viewer of my artwork a unique and emotional experience allowing for a connection to be made between the artwork and their own emotions.
My art compliments and models my life as I strive to strike a perfect balance that is born from the love of nature, art and family. My paintings are open compositions, textured, full of charm, and passionate which is the essence of my art.
