My abstract art pieces convey inner emotion in everyday life. The canvas explores colors that I’m inspired by, what feelings I’m experiencing, or by the shapes I’m contemplating. Using a variety of materials helps me bring those textures and colors to life. I feel my artwork is characterized by an innovative and versatile use of imagery, textures, and mark making. Balance and harmony of colors coupled with spontaneity is a key factor to express my vision.
Tribal Dance literally has colors and textures dancing about the mandala that is slightly off balance. My emotions the day I created this were mixed and varied, my internal center was slightly off center as well. The initial process of building color then texture, then more color and pattern were a process that helps me focus and feel grounded.
