ARTIST STATEMENT

I am an artist who focuses on capturing colors, movement, shapes and light around me. Using oil on canvas as the primary medium, I make textured works, which strive to exhibit  “balance.”I achieve balance through the precise placement of color and use of texture.  My early work focused on creating geometric paintings with linear up and down movements contrasted against side-to-side movements with my palette knife.  With a tapestry like focus, this style has precision and depth.

Even as my geometric style becomes more flexible, balance remains pivotal to my efforts.  I focus on capturing raw, natural elements – such as terrain, water, sun and sky — and equalize for the contrast between light and dark while capturing movement through a variety of textures.

I select a few colors and a base texture from which to build to begin a journey of exploration.  Layering over a period of weeks and months is the key to accentuate the “map” of texture and ultimately reveal each painting’s potential. Running a pallet knife over the raised “bumps” of a moderately dry canvas capitalizes on the texture already infused into the painting.  Using a reversal of color amplifies the contrasting hues.This technique is born from my need to capture movement through a texturized canvas.  The palette knife gives me the freedom to blend, build or add color to create depth or flutter on the surface.  It adds an element of chance that stimulates my creativity and enhances my connection to a tactile interpretation of the forces around me.

Examining each work from different perspectives helps me to crystallize the viewpoint of the painting. Gaining distance and viewing photos of the work on a computer add an element of objectivity and flexibility to determine the optimal orientation and relative balance of each of the painting’s key elements.  I repeat this process until I reach the tipping point when additional changes no longer enhance the overall effect.I am passionate about “collecting” colors, shapes and textures wherever I go.  

Painting is my quiet place to explore and develop my ideas and dreams.  It is also a conduit for having a conversation with viewers about my findings.  I find joy in sharing my interpretation of the essence of natural beauty and hope it stimulates contemplation and peace for viewers. Furthermore, my paintings often reveal glimpses of recognizable forms, which uncovers insights into a viewer’s emotional state as well as my own.

My work is influenced by the Impressionists and Abstract Expressionists. My every day activities coupled with my eco-travels provide me with the content from which to develop creative ideas.
