Inlet Beach, Florida, United States
I have always loved art, music, and nature; a place of calm, which fueled my creativity. However, it was only when I began to spend time with my mother as she battled end-stage cancer, that my interest turned into a veritable practice. Being an artist most of her life, she was and still is a major influence on my work. Painting became a way to feel close to her and help me cope with the difficult reality ahead.
I love to paint abstract and landscape impressionist pieces, sourcing inspiration from my feelings, life experiences, and beautiful natural scenery. The titles of my pieces are often puns or witticisms or are sometimes associated with personal experiences or meaning I want to convey. Working primarily with acrylics, I create dimension and movement, using a combination of brushes, palette knives as well as silicone blades and wedges. My process is intuitive, as I let myself be guided by my emotions, without any preconceived ideas; choosing my palette and composition as I move along. I pour passion and purpose into every single painting, which reflects who I really am. In so doing, I wish to bring hope, light, or inspiration to those whose paths I cross.
