Artists Statement

Before I go to clean my brushes, toothbrushes, chopsticks, scrapers, palette knives and sponges I have sweat streaming down my face and neck. My arms and hands are covered in paint and I wear jeans that have the memories of my colors and movements.  The indoor studio floor is spackled too with paint. Every few years I clean off what will come off from the floor.

Physicality is my form of painting. Maybe that’s why I don’t usually paint figuratively. I hardly ever sit down as I move most of the time while rock or classical music play. My body is part of the story as how the painting will form.

My large outdoor studio is for paintings over 6 ft. I want to physically jump into the painting otherwise it is not finished. Layers of my favorite colors are mixed in my palm sometimes, or on the painting, or on palette paper. There are no rules of using ink, acrylic paint, oil paint, pastels, pens of many types, and texture from clean sand to polymer medium, collage and assemblage from found materials from flea markets and even from my grandmother, miniature cars and planes. There is a history of me in every piece of art and the history of the layers form while I don’t drive it but the painting tells me what it needs to be complete. Old paintings are painted over if they don’t feel historically finished. Layers of texture, color and stories are my way of creating.

I live in Southern California near the Pacific Ocean and as a result of the area’s beautiful weather I am able to paint in my outdoor studio nearly year round. My customers include top designers and stagers in the Los Angeles area as well as private buyers through various art shows and online. I thoroughly enjoy doing custom paintings for clients to meet the needs of a particular space.

I invite you to view my available work and reach out to me with any questions you might have. I am always happy to make arrangements for local customers to view specific paintings in person. I hope if you’re viewing my art, you will find pleasure and truth in it.
