Autumn Spice

“Autumn Spice” 18 ” x 24″ acrylic, mixed media on canvas

 

As a child, my favorite thing to do was to play in the woods, draw, dream, and allow my imagination to transport me to fantasy worlds and far-off places. I received my B.F.A. in illustration from Columbus College of Art and Design and have continued to use my art to let my imagination soar.

In addition to local and regional art organizations, I’m a member of ISEA (International Society of Experimental Artists) and represented by Studios on High Gallery in Columbus, Ohio.

 

Ice Dream

“Ice Dream” 18″ x 36″ acrylic, mixed media on canvas

 

In these paintings I have chosen to step back from realism I once embraced for a more personal expression. I don’t have a preconceived idea of how each painting will develop but expect it to grow and change as my life evolves.

 

Slide Rock

The grace, stillness, and majesty of nature provides a place for me to contemplate and reflect. My goal for my paintings is to create surreal and whimsical landscapes and evoke in the viewer the emotions when surrounded by a beautiful and natural setting.

 

Rumination

I’m inspired to embrace fresh methods and combinations on canvas. My technique encompasses pouring acrylic paint on a substrate, painting the image from reference and adding a variety of patterned papers and fabric.

 

Cascading

I’m enticed by tactile textures, surface quality, bright color, and design. I love the process of integrating pattern, color and value, and enticing each painting into a enchanting conclusion.

 

Color Field

My dream for my art is to share a private moment, a part of my soul, and a feeling of magic.
