I Paint Energy

US

Artist Statement

Without the ability to actualize an idea or concept art would not exist. My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret energy. I do not limit myself to one style or concept. Inspiration and ideas change, knowledge changes and we evolve. Each piece I create is simultaneously and extension of my thoughts, past experiences, present exchanges of energy and previews of the future. I am a contemporary abstract artist. I use interior paint, acrylic paint, oil pastels and extreme texture mediums to convey my thoughts and emotions and to express my view on current events. I incorporate gestural movement and many markings to express freedom. I include hidden words and numbers that are a significant part of my everyday life. I like the idea of being able to evoke thought, passion and ideas from my work. I would like each viewer to take with them a feeling of boldness creativity and believing in their higher self through color and texture
