Artist Statement
This is truly my belief as an artist as it is said "beauty is in the eye of the beholder.." Growing up in Colorado I was surrounded by the majestic magic of the Rocky Mountains which inspired me to love texture, different color hues and scale. What I see in my mind... I create just that. My expression of the interpretation is then complete for those to see, feel, and have thoughts about their own opinion regarding the piece. I love for people to create something in their mind that brings different feelings about art to the forefront. I draw with charcoal and paint with mixed media such as oil, acrylics, and my favorite is metallic plaster because it gives such added interest and texture. I sometimes incorporate different types of sheen, such as: Mica (ground up stone) and glass flakes to the piece to bring out more movement so the art dances right before your eyes.
