The Silos at Sawyer Yards
I am inspired by nature, travel and bits and pieces of everyday life. The sights, color and energy that each new day brings mingle with past memories and become a mental palette and renewing vessel of inspiration for my paintings. Each one is a new adventure, a joyous exploration of layering organic elements, minds eye fragments and shadows of previous journeys. Listening to my innermost creative voice, I translate the beauty of nature, cities and even constellations into colorful and sometimes fanciful contemporary art. I love to create many layers of translucent color, texture and rich glazes in my work, sometimes incorporating paper or small objects to add interest, depth and surprise. Using a varying combination of acrylics, gels, texture pastes, paper and glitter, I start my intuitive process of layering ingredients and paint letting the canvas speak and guide me toward the final outcome. My paintings are colorful escapes and abstracted translations of my memories, things I love and places I've been. The are snapshots of emotion, revealing my past, present and intuitive journeys. It is my hope that my artwork also serves as a touch point to remind others of their own journeys and pleasures in life.
