I am an artist… I am passionate and obsessive about my work to the point of neurosis and I love it that way. I live my life in color and I have always been drawn to unlikely beauty, from rusted garden tools, to the way a paper crumples inside my hand.
It seems I am artistically drawn to bold statements and color. I revel in the usage of discards and found objects being my secret treasure, I live for finding the beauty in items that others did not see.
To be able to take this idea and combine it with a desire to have excitement and color leap off the canvas in 3-Dimensional brilliant hues is the concept that evolved in my collection
“Sense of Touch.”
The pieces came to life and I find even after being intimately involved with each piece, sometimes as I walk away I will notice an entirely new moment hiding on the canvas. Their stories of color and dimension have become real and the contrasts of textural concealment and bold pigment have a wonderful hidden pull of opposites.
I will continue to paint without reserve and obsess with vengeance about the exquisiteness of the overlooked.
