"ART IS EVERYWHERE "
I am a contemporary mixed media painter whose art takes on a life of its own. My hand holds a brush and I am transported to another space and time. The paints mix themselves. The paintings paint themselves. If I attempt to control the process I inevitably ruin the canvas.
I am influenced by how color, texture, light, emotion and pain reflect in the human face and upon our natural landscapes. I often find myself mesmerized while exploring the faces of strangers or lands I have explored. I’ve been told I stare. I stare at life and it comes back out through my brush - sometimes with colors of intoxicated exultation, other times with the harsh strokes of the human condition.
