My slideshow contains two different bodies of work -- paintings and THE PATH series of drawings, hence the two statements below.
I work mainly from my own inner vision. My eye never sleeps. I paint the abstract language of colors, forms and shapes that my eye visualizes. I use bold colors to provoke a feeling or sensation that engages the viewer in an emotional exchange with the work.
Nature can fire up an individual's imagination, and function as a metaphor for growth and change. "The Path Series" of drawings depicts sea grass at its most basic level, yet, it's also a highly abstracted, brightly colored environment that "speaks" for me, in a way. Multiple layers of Prismacolors™ are built up to achieve the intensity and rich tones. Bold, primary colors are used for their power to evoke sensations, and elicit an emotional response from viewers.
