Artist's Statement:
As a self instructed artist, I approach each new challenge with apprehension and excitement. Only then do I know that something wonderful is on the horizon. As a professional artist for over 15 years, I have sold hundred’s of paintings and sculpture. My work has been commission by commercial and residential clients throughout the US. I have exhibited in numerous galleries, tradeshows and fairs in the US and Canada. Challenging the elements of color, texture and materials is the driving force of my work. An intrigues behavior consumes as I work to blend the unusual and dare to combine elements – that by all logic shouldn’t be. There is something about the statement, ‘You can’t’ that drives me to prove otherwise. Why can’t I mix the hard mosaic properties with the softness of the canvas? Why can’t I use cement to compose and color a picture; as if it were paint on canvas? My art is the one place in my life where ‘Can’t’ is not an option.I take risk in my work by means of bold bright colors. Am I trying to make a statement? Perhaps! But the message I am attempting to send is that it is okay to surround your world with sunshine. If you love color - than allow yourself the excitement of that expression.
