I am a professionally trained and working graphic designer, as well as a painter, collage and mixed media artist. My abstract work is a product of uninhibited creative thinking, linking imagination with reality. It is characterized by gritty, textural under-painting, conceptually spontaneous and unplanned mark making with bits of nervous pencil/pen scratchings, and splashes of color, form and artistic flow. The artwork invites my audience on a journey where reality and imagination are intimately joined. Paying particular attention to the balance between matter, color and form with strong composition at the center.
I create art in different styles, based on what I am feeling in the moment. Only painting or creating artwork in a specific style or medium is too constrictive to creativity so I try to "mix it up" where ever I feel the need!! "Life is too short to ONLY eat vanilla ice cream!"
