Artist Statement/Art Resume

I am a self-taught artist who as an adult went back to school to redefine what it was I wanted to accomplish with my art.  I attended many classes at the University of Vermont in a two year period which helped me to grow immensely as an artist.  After experimenting with my art for a while, a life altering event caused a complete shift in how I painted.

Prior to this shift, I painted about what I saw and knew which included still life and landscapes.  It then became more about what I felt and about pushing the boundaries of how I had previously painted.  This release allowed me to paint with freedom and emotion which for me led to a very different means of expression, a very abstract expression.

As I continue on in my journey of abstract painting, I find more fascination and freedom to explore and experiment.  Some paintings are deliberate and are meant to evoke specific feelings while others are an exploration of technique, color and texture.  Some of my paintings are planned while others are very impromptu, I find that I work better that way.  I have done many pieces that have included found objects, I find they can add more depth and meaning and can give more form and function to my work.

In the past 15 years I have had many solo and group exhibits as well as commissioned work.  I continue to pursue every avenue so that I may share what I love to do with others.  Art imitates life and is a continual process of growth and experiences. It will live long after we have gone which is why I love this quote, "I have walked this earth for 30 years, and, out of gratitude, I want to leave some souvenir."  -Vincent Van Gogh
