I have been painting my entire life, but never realized it was a true passion of mine until later in life. I always knew I saw beauty in the world where others couldn’t, and had interpretations of life that others didn’t. I now use that beauty to inspire my creativity to come to life. My current abstract work allows my unique interpretations of subjects to be shown to the viewer.
Like the layers of my life that contributed to my artistic realization, I paint with layers to create a depth and luminosity that would notnormally be there. Along with the paint on the canvas, my work is always evolving. I try to keep it fresh and exciting for myself and the viewer.
Throughout the painting my spirit and emotions are being spilled onto the canvas, in hopes that they are relayed to the viewer. Colors and brush strokes come through from my earlier feelings in the painting playing a part in the overall work. With each painting, I hope that the viewer will experience the passion that I communicate within my work.
