I create emotionally based mixed media art. I seek to find the marriage of colors - to create transition from one to the other, seamlessly. A memory of distant lands, the scent of a new place and the iconography of a culture. The transition from hue to hue and tone to tone, seamlessly, effortlessly moves me continually forward in my work. I typically use acrylic based mediums and then expand to anything that strikes me. I have no fear of media or medium and love the feel of a paint brush in my hand and stacks of wonderful papers around me. I use my hands, my feet....anything that will give me the texture I am looking for.
Over the years my style has changed a lot and I find myself easily influenced by other artists. I think as any artist I am still finding my way and have resigned myself to being a seeker, experimenter, alchemist of art....for today. Recently Iâ€™ve been exploring digital art creation on my iPad using apps such as Art Rage, Paper 53, NoteLedge, Phonto, Procreate and Noteshelf. While I loose the tactile quality I love about traditional mixed media work, being able to have all of these tools wherever I am allows me to produce more work and flush out ideas quickly.
