“I’m a mixed media/water media artist who paints primarily in watercolors and experiments with patterns and textures by incorporating pen and ink, marbling, and/or collage. Acrylic marbling is a technique I use in a unique way to re-present ordinary subjects in an extraordinary light. Color is important to me along with point of view, occasional allegory, and whimsical twists. As you might guess, my artwork is looser and more expressive than realistic, but details are important to me and freedom to be imaginative with them. You might wonder why I choose to emphasize one thing over another, and that is a conversation I hope to create along with the art. My aim is to poke your heart and make you feel something (preferably positive) or remind you of a moment in your life, or take you back to a place you loved.”
