I am an abstract artist working with mostly acrylic, inks and often watery mediums. I am continuously playing, experimenting and letting my inner child and recovering perfectionist run free with paint!
What I love about Abstract Art is that it means something different to each artist and to each viewer.
Yet, at the same time, there is this constant conversation going on, a subtle yet powerful one where souls speak to one another.
The inspired soul speaks through impressions. I believe it is our life's journey in this human body to keep fine tuning our listening so we can hear these messages more clearly. We can then interpret them as divine instructions to follow in our daily lives.
What does Abstract mean to me? It is truly a visual language.
Art is my truest self expression and it is the vessel in which the conversations of my unconscious parts (emotions, desires, healing experiences) speak visually.
As someone who found out I was a joyful painter 35 years into my life, it couldn't be more of who I am!! I have found it is the foundation of my being and for all the work and sharing that I do.
Expressively and intuitively painting takes everything I've learned thru the years as a mindfulness practitioner, teacher & therapist in order to let go and release my inner critic and to truly be free in my movement and marks.
My work is this entire journey on display with color, energy, aliveness and contemplative space to surround it all. It is a celebration of what I have been through, of what I have healed and am still healing. It is the joy of my truest self living and breathing through this world.
There is often a zen feel and a primal energy to my work. I'm inspired by textures, light, fabrics, fashion and decor as well as many different color palettes.
The cooler palettes have a mystery, romance and moodiness to them that speaks to the slower and sometimes heaviers tones of my soul. You may notice that I absolutely love deep blues, indigo and rich violets along with lot's of metallic!. To me, these are soul colors.
The warmer palettes have a fire in them, they bring energy and aliveness into the work and a warmth that radiates from within. Fluorescent colors are exceptionally fun to work with!
Of course, bringing both palettes together is a way to harmonize and contrast these energies. I never know which color palette will be the next to surface, but I enjoy exploring wherever the craving may go to.
Nature often finds its way throughout my pieces as well. My paintings will showcase the same artist's hand that makes mountains, blooms flowers, sprouts botanicals and creates earth, fire, wind and water.
The unspoken words of my life now have a place to rest and a place to dance. I couldn't be more grateful to receive this gift of limitless space of possibility and inspiration.
Sharing this journey with others is a gift that lights my Aries fire!
