When I paint, I usually have a single thought that influences a new piece.  I sketch out very little on the canvas, instead, I spend the bulk of the preparation looking for a playful harmony to express my “idea”,  by experimenting with color combinations and the addition of different mediums. I especially like things that are soft and fluid, with bright bursts of color.  Many of my paintings are done with fluid acrylic and oil which creates pieces with very few boundaries, yet the impression of something more specific and defined needles its way into the picture.

Art has always had a soft spot in my heart.  It can take you away, make you curious, and enchant you.

I started painting in high school, and am/was fortunate to live in a city where frequent “field trips” to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City were provided.  I was memorized by the beauty and diversity of the many collections.  I was most likely the dorkiest kid, reading each caption, staring too long at certain paintings. and being left behind the group as I got lost in my own thoughts.  It is awe inspiring the centuries of images and sculptures interpreted by artists who put their unique vision into their creations

I hope you enjoy.
