Color is the reason I paint. I thrive on the intimate, volatile, and evolving relationships between each and every member of the ol’ color wheel. They are like my friends. Orange is my BFF. I find her vibrant, easy-going, and flexible......Ms. Biddox, my seventh grade art teacher,
is to blame. She told me I was a good artist and I believed her. I didn’t know any better. Over the years, I experimented with various media.
Recently, I discovered a love of mixed media. Not only can I put my finger painting to good use and watch my colors become friends (or enemies), but I can also introduce external factors to spice it up – handmade paper, texture additives, wine labels, and found objects. It’s like inviting a new and mysterious guest to a dinner party and watching how this simple dynamic changes the people you think you know.
Creating artwork is an intimate experience and the result is a living, breathing, and beautiful object. My goal is for the final piece to become a part of your family…making you smile, laugh and sometimes just stare off in wonderment of times gone by…and times to come.
Do My Titles Sound Familiar?
All of my pieces are named after the title of a song. It may be what I am listening to at the time, or what comes to mind when the piece is finished. More likely, what I want you to think I am listening to! I try to evoke the spirit of the individual piece through the song. Sometimes, the relationship is obvious but, other times it takes a bit more imagination and humor. You decide.
