Inspired by nature, I use texture and color to evoke emotion and movement in my work. The love of this creative process developed over 25 years of producing murals and faux finishes for residential and commercial clients. Now I incorporate those techniques of layering heavy textures, paint glazes and at times imagery onto my canvases. The journey is different for each piece I paint, they evolve and are unique. Pablo Picasso is one of the many artists I admire and have been inspired by. He created works in such a variety of ways using form, color, and different styles. He once said that he spent the rest of his life trying to see things as children did, pure and without preconceptions. I believe itʼs the never ending ways to “see” things that keeps my artistic fire going.
