"Painting provides me with a sense of calm and inner peace—it’s my happy place! "
As an intuitive idealist, I see my world as endless potential and possibility! I think that’s why I’m so drawn to abstract art. It has no agenda and with every stroke of a brush, something new is showing up. Each piece is unique, in and of itself, and I never really know how it will evolve. That’s exciting to me!
I am very moved and inspired by beautiful music and whenever I’m painting, my instrumental New Age or light Jazz music is ON! Music helps shift me out of my analytical, left brain, and moves me into my creative one.
Medium: Painting, Acrylic, Oil
Style: Abstracts, Contemporary
I am personally drawn to vibrant colors and dynamic, flowing movement, so my painting seems to incorporate that. There also seems to be some element of light as the source of focus in my work. I begin my pieces with dark colors to define a composition, and then I let the intuitive, creative process evolve.
I approach my painting like I approach my life—I observe….I assess….I react….and I respond. The process is fluid and never the same. I have no doubt that there’s an emotional element playing out, but I don’t try to analyze that. I simply respond to the piece and see where it wants to go.
Of course, not all paintings come together the way I’d like, but it’s interesting to me that with some pieces, I actually get chills when working on them. It’s like my soul telling me the piece is complete! Other times, not so much, but I sit with them for awhile to see of anything else jumps out. If nothing inspires me over time, I simply paint over it, and many times that’s where some beautiful paintings come about!
People tell me that they love the energy from my artwork. When someone experiences some emotional reaction to my work, I’m really touches me. I feel like a part of me is forever connected to a part of them!
Painting provides me with a sense of calm and inner peace—it’s my happy place! Every day is a new adventure in the studio and I am so grateful that I have the time and ability to pursue this dream.
Thank you for your interest in my work!
