My art coalesces energy with nature. I compose contemporary abstract designs that embody my passion for color, texture, dimension and movement. Painted or poured acrylics and mixed mediums are layered on canvas and built up over several weeks, creating rich textures and engaging mixtures of kaleidoscopic colors, often taking on a marbleized kinetic. Sometimes pieces are created separately, collaged together and then embellished with additional translucent or opaque layers. Canvases range from 20" x 30" to triptychs 40" x 90".
The fluid essence of my art frees my imagination, and inspires further intuitive creations. I am influenced by what I sense in the environment. Dividing my days between the energy of coastal beaches and the solitude of majestic forests provides time to reflect and cleanse my soul in nature, which reverberates in my paintings. The ever-moving ocean inspires as does the earth breathing through her pines. Creating through my heart, my art is me. The joy is mine.
