Through art I express feelings and observations. I am known for color-saturated abstract oil paintings. I’m attracted to color, contrast, and light. I do abstract work because it allows me to express a feeling or an impression of an event. I prefer to work with oils because of their rich texture and deep, vibrant colors. I was mentored by many artists however, my art training really began with my mother, a classically trained artist with a Fine Arts degree. I was born in Southern California, now I reside in Wisconsin. My art is in both private and public collections IL, CO, CA, VA, WI, and private international collections. I used to use art to hide from the world, now I use art to tell a story to the world, combining my emotions, observations, and experiences on the canvas. I also do commissions and you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a commissioned piece.
