About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    As a Communication major in my younger years I explored different theories of communication and have spent most of my adult life using sales as a communication platform. In my 20 years of experience I have never used visual art as a means to communicate. Within the last 7 months, I have found a new platform to communicate with in painting.

    I would define myself as a contemporary artist. I paint mostly abstracts. My medium of choice is acrylic paint; however, I do incorporate soft pastels, charcoal and metallic in some of my work. I like to use bright hues and gold accents in my work on occasion. The gold accents add an elegance and balance to the chaos. The gilding becomes reflective in the light from every angle adding warmth to the material. I also build depth and texture with pallet knife applications for interest.

    Art is meant to provoke conversation. If I can produce a concept that invokes enough interest to generate a conversation, then I have done my job as an effective communicator and an artist.
