As I paint, abstract images of nature slowly evolve.
I begin a painting with an idea, but as I continue applying paint, the idea transforms into a complete image. My process of creating is a rewarding challenge that keeps me engaged and excited as an artist. Viewing the final piece of art fuels my fire for the next project. I love layering pigments to see the effect one has on the other. Each piece is a learning tool for the next and in itself an experiment with paint. In some works I use different mediums to create textured surfaces that I hope will inspire the viewer’s imagination.
I enjoy mixing colors that form unusual positive and negative shapes when applied to the piece. I use wooden squares and rectangles because I want the viewer to look inside the image with the mentality of ‘thinking outside the box’ to interpret these conceptual colorful images.
