My work portrays the dreams and reality of life through color, and images both real and imagined.
I use nature.. the solid structure of rock formations, the forcefulness and tranquility of water and the
everchanging light and motion of all living things …to explore our feelings about what we see.
While I work in both acrylic and oil many of my abstracts use a combination of mediums;
an acrylic base of color and motion and a clear polymer medium overlay to create form, then
I finish the piece with oil outlining the form and completing the statement.
I have recently been working on large abstracts in acrylic. I enjoy variety so my style changes
from very realistic, to impressionist to abstraction and back to reality again.
I hope that my art evokes a feeling, a memory, a determination or encouragement and brings you peace.
