"My art is a reflection of places and situations: real and imagined. Results are not always literal, but sometimes an illusion. Colors blur and blend, line disappears and re-appears. Each work examines emotion, whether it be longing or gratitude. I tell my story in a way that can be universally translated. Materials used change from work to work. Some pieces require extra texture, some demand smooth flowing edges. I find the different use of materials keeps my creative energy peaked. 

Works on Acrylic

Transforming a clear piece of acrylic into a captivating scene of color, line and depth is the focus of my recent series. I find it exhilarating to explore possibilities in abstracted form, various viewpoints, layers and color. Expansive cloud formations and low horizon landscapes are abstractly depicted in acrylic paint with pools of wet on wet color existing in harmony with more solid edges of form. Color is applied more by instinct than forethought, due to the immediacy of creating effect before the acrylic paint becomes unyielding. Knowledge of color and how it reacts to water and materials is imperative.
