BIO: I find the act of filling a canvas therapeutic – processing thoughts with a paint brush, most of the time without expectation of a certain result. My spirit laid out in paint. With that kind of freedom in mind, I utilize various materials and mediums to accomplish heavy textures and complex layers for rich expressions of contrast, depth and elegance. My work becomes softer as I go. Blurry, even, like memories or landscapes seen in the far off distance – no realistic detail, no worry with accuracy. Just the remnant of then idea of what was seen – the stripped beauty of it.
My pieces are abstract interpretations of one thing or another: a lofty imagination, emotions evoked by an experience, my natural environment up here in the foothills, or the place I come from. You’ll notice an avid use of neutral tones – even where colors are present, they are earth-related; reflective of thunderstorms, beach sand or mountain fog; a mixt of upbringing and present surroundings.
