Looking Within

For me it has always been about the joy that comes from being creative and the fun that the artistic process has always provided for me. I love it when I can get in the zone and let the creative process bring my work to life.

I have always considered myself a multifaceted artist and have been very fortunate and found great joy in exploring a multitude of different mediums in a host of different art forms.

 

Reflections of Downtown

“Reflections Of Downtown” acrylics on torch-cut steel/mixed media 30″ x 48″

 

I work now exclusively with recycled metals. I like the way that painting on metals adds a creative and unique element to my art, one that you can not find with canvas or wood. I find my metals at scrap yards, recycling yards and surplus suppliers.

 

City Scape

“City Scape” acrylics on torch-cut steel/mixed media 24″ x 40″

 

The creative process begins when I torch-cut steel into the shapes that I want and then mount them on custom built frames. I really like the look that the large bolts, washers and unique pieces of metal add to my work.

My painting process is simply layer upon layer of acrylics until I feel I have achieved the look and texture I am looking for. Bringing together all of these different and diverse elements, I like to think I am making each of my paintings a true one-of-a-kind, three dimensional work of art.

 

Orange Reflections

“Orange Reflections” acrylics on torch-cut steel/mixed media, 15″ x 40″

 

The unrefined rustic detail that I see in nature gives me inspiration.  Objects that have been left outside to rust captivate me and I feel compelled to give them a new life.

 

The Red Sea

“The Red Sea” acrylics on steel / mixed media, on wood frame 24″ x 48″

 

I am also inspired by the Sea, the movement of the water and how it reflects light from the sky. In each one of my paintings there is a water element, brought forth in layers of colors and texture to reach a unique and interwoven piece of work.

 

Beyond The Horizon

I feel extremely blessed to have this opportunity to share my paintings with all of you, hope you enjoy!
