Hello, I am a contemporary mixed-media artist and I have this thing for contrast, spaciousness, and lots of layers with just enough textural interest to evoke a sense of abstract abandon. Then it all comes together for a pleasing design of contrast with a little drama. Because, well, life is dramatic. These hallmarks make people smile and bring them a sense of joy because it's hope that I'm pedaling, its just that I use colorful art to do it. I want you to feel good when you look at my work and to find something new each time you regard it. My work begins with Asemic writing, forms, marks, colors, and employs both transparencies and opacities that ebb and flow onto the canvas allowing the viewer to connect with the abstraction of the work yet find something familiar. Current abstract work is Oil and Cold Wax Medium on Birchwood panels in custom made sizes. The paint is applied with a squeegee and brayer rather than bruises for a looser look and feel.
