As part of my artistic warm-up exercise and to fulfill the need to produce work without restriction or restraint, I cultivate sketchbooks. Within the volumes of these spiral bound books, I often draw, sketch, paint, or use personal photographs which I will alter with markers, acrylics, dry to wet mediums and found paper collage. My ideas flow from personal experience, current events, and formal art history. This work becomes my data bank of imagery to which I often return to for inspiration. Occasionally, I will then paint small 8” x 8” paintings, as direct and immediate responses to daily life. Completed in one sitting, they satisfy the need to pursue new ideas, interests, and materials. Contrary to my scrapbooks and small works, my life-size abstract figurative oil paintings are works I develop over time. As I work on many simultaneously, they become individual voices, with some being completed more easily than others. I might begin without a specific visual intention, yet they often manifest subconsciously into a personal narrative, which when completed, I might understand more fully than the viewer. However, I want the work to stand on its own and have the viewer to appreciate the work for itself. Through the use of color, different brushwork or painting directly with my fingers, layering of paint, sanding, and manipulating the surfaces, I encourage the final painting to become implicit with emotion, that being the general intention of my work. I am passionate about exercising my ability to turn personal hardship into self-awareness, artistic expression, and powerful painting as a reflective conduit. Through sketchbooks, small, and larger works I am able to explore these situations in varying depths. Transformation and transcendence are opportunities for self-acceptance while allowing the viewer varying levels of expectation and negotiation for them to experience a sense of spirituality and humanity.
