ABOUT MY ART
My artwork has transformed over the years into a style I finally feel is my own. I call my work “organic abstract” because it has a very organic, free-flowing nature…no hard lines or edges. My paintings are created intuitively, without any preconceived ideas or planned outcomes for the finished piece. I work in many layers, adding and subtracting until it reaches a certain balance and “feels complete”. Even though I work primarily with acrylic paint, I'm always exploring different styles, methods, mediums and substrates. Change is essential for me, in all areas of life, so I’m sure my work will continue to evolve as well.
My inspiration comes from the everyday world around me; these inspirations make their way to the canvas and tell a story. I usually start with a certain color palette, and as the layers develop, I let the colors, texture, marks and movement guide me. Usually the smaller pieces have more markings, because I’m sitting down and get more into the details. Some paintings may only take a few hours, and others may take months; in the end, my hope is that each viewer can interpret their own story through this visual narrative.
