About The Artwork

Energetic abstract done on heavy paper with acrylic and mixed media in shades of blue, aqua, purple layered with intuitive mark making. Painting does not go to the edge of the paper. It has a border of approximately 1". I name my pieces by what occurred while painting the piece: what moved me, what struggles had to be overcome, my mood, my train of thought, what the piece reminded me of, sometimes a song that was on and the beat moved me or the lyrics influenced me in some way. I never intentionally start out a painting saying “I’m going to do this, or I’m going to do that”. All of my pieces morph into something that is totally surprising and unexpected. Original abstract mixed media painting. I incorporate a number of mediums into all of my abstract mixed media works. This original abstract on paper was created with acrylic paints, colored pencils, and graphite as many of my abstract works have been since I started painting in 2009. I am proud to say that my original paintings hang in the collections of both new and seasoned art collectors alike.

The creative process for me is one that is both automatic and emotional. When I go into my studio I always go with a sense of wonder and ‘what if’. Creating my art is like being on a curving mountain road or exploring an unknown path; ups and downs, highs and lows, twists and turns. I try to approach each piece without fear of doing something wrong. I let the piece shape itself and bring me along for the ride. Like life, my pieces are constant movement, constant change. The creation process is cathartic, allowing my emotions to spill out onto my canvas as a release. Sometimes conflicts have to be overcome, but at other times, when I'm in the moment and not really thinking about where the painting is going, I just let it take me where it needs to go. That's when it's magical, when I don't have to think, I just have to do. I had one viewer of my work comment that "I used color, texture and shape without fear." Being an abstract expressionist, I don’t like to tell people what I was thinking when doing a painting because most of the time I don’t know myself. I just want to experiment and explore...discover the possibilities. I really would like for them to take away from the work what speaks to them. I don't want to put any preconceived ideas into the viewers head. That is why I like abstract pieces so much, the viewer can form their own conclusions and let their imagination run wild.
