I create abstract digital art that invites beauty into our digital world of 0’s and 1’s.
I make my brushstrokes and the canvas starts to tell its story in colour. I am totally inspired by colour. For me a world without colour is unimaginable!
My work explores the relationship of human nature and emotions. With the use of bright, bold colors I strive to make statements that are positive and uplifting to provide the viewer a world of sensory pleasure.
My acrylic paintings emphasize color and texture. I create texture by stamping or carving with various tools into wet gesso. The composition is further developed with contrasting values and color.
My sensibility, paired with my expressive character, guides my abstract creations. Vitality, optimism, spontaneity are my key messages. I play with colors and forms; they make my moods visible.
The vibrant colors and symbols of Native American art, weavings and pottery from my childhood in the Southwest continue to influence the palette and expressive marks in my paintings today.
My creative and intuitive work begins when I enter my studio. My collection of memories and their presence move me to create. Look closely, you will see them there.
Ever since childhood, I have been interested in and touched by authenticity. It is that authenticity that I continue to seek out and explore in my paintings.
I paint in an intuitive style, not having the final outcome in mind from the start. It’s a practice in trust; where the canvas will lead is full of surprises.
