|I have been an artist since I was able to hold a crayon. Even though my life has taken many turns where I haven't been able to express my art, it has always been with me.
To me, art is a spiritual journey through life. The emotions of my life come out when I paint, which is why most of my paintings tend to be abstract. I am not concerned with re-creating reality, I am trying to create a new reality flowing from emotion and spirit.
Creating art is a very sensual experience, the feel of the paint on my brush in contact with the canvas, watching the colors flow onto the surface of the paper- such things are why I paint.
I graduated from Oregon State University in 1997, at the age of 49, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. I am a resident of the beautiful State of Oregon.
My art is about color and the sensuality of paint. Any other meaning you might read into my work is up to you, the viewer.
