My mixed media stylistic paintings are high energy, active, and colorful, and the feelings evoked become personal to each individual who views my work.
Art is an opportunity to escape to a different place. For me the process of creating offers excitement, freedom, intrigue, and at the same time, a sense of peace. Through the push, pull and splattering of my materials I seek to engage the viewer in my creative process.
Each piece reflects my love of movement, energy and the joy in the world. I hope to inspire in my viewers the power of positive thinking.
