I have always been drawn to the creative process . . . coming up with something new that captures a thought, a feeling, a fleeting image in my mind.
Painting for me is like a meditation. You have to be fully in the moment and what I love is how the creative process so often produces delightful surprises for me. With a palette knife, a stroke of the knife or a subtle change in pressure will mix and lay the colors on my canvas with unexpected results.
Creating beauty is truly rewarding. Colors speak to me and I love the contrasts of bold strokes of the knife shrouded by an ethereal mist. I want my paintings to convey a certain mood or feeling while at the same time leaving room to be filled by the imagination of the viewer.
