A graduate of fine arts, as well as self taught. My experience has been with clay & paper sculpture, silk painting, watercolor, pen, graphite, pastel pencil, acrylic, and oils. I am most comfortable with figural, portraits of people and animals. In addition, my interests are naturalist environments botanicals, insects, everything! I live to explore and be curious of the infinite worlds in our environment.
Visual art feeds my soul. Everything in life we as artists experience becomes the journey to express it. Those experiences shape our perceptions, and our creations just as those whom interpret our art. I am endlessly searching for artistic endeavors that satisfy my curiosity and allow me to express my concept, by incorporating textures, bold colors, and lines that blend into a composition. Many of my works come from a special moment I have experienced. The challenge is to translate this emotion into my artwork and create a similar emotion for the viewer. For me, visual art is inspiration to attain an understanding of life, and in doing so, I encourage the viewers to explore my compositions for what the perception represents for them. When forms that are recognizable, yet a distortion of shapes that may transcend into more than one subject, ultimately this will convey an emotion that the viewer will identify with and in them find a revelation, insight, or amusement. These are my triumphs, and seem to be by far my most successful.
I have been an artist since the age of two (although not proficient at that time); I knew it was my destiny. The many occasions, as a teen, I would sculpt or paint until the early hours of the morning. My father would find me lying limp by my artwork...wake me; scold me for my nocturnal endeavors, knowing he would repeat this ritual, as I would be there again. My most profound influence, my father, encouraged me to really "see" the world around me. He was a cartoonist doodler. As well, inspiration or mentors Georgia O'Keefe, artist; Gene Kleinsmith, sculptor/ceramist/artist; Ken Follet, ceramist; Rudy Autio, ceramist. Many other past greats as well, Frank Lloyd Wright, architect was my inspiration as a sculptor of forms.
Original art whether appreciated as a collector or investor nourishes and enriches our lives and our surroundings with personality and ambience. Tactile personality is vacant in reproductions. My goal is to enrich your environment, and create original art to satisfy my search....although in the hope that you will connect with, enjoy my work and the journey with me.
