ENDANGERED: Fine Art & Photography Contest 2018 Submission.
I love to watch people, imagining their life stories. I often find myself drawn in and affected by the lives of people I meet. This visual or emotional memory of jubilancy or struggle is stored inside me.
Some of my art turns to nature and pays homage to its restorative quality. Billowing clouds on bright blue skies, impending storms, hazy atmospheric days, the movement of water, all excite and call me.
Most of my landscapes highlight the sky and a body of water. People are often seen interacting synergistically with nature, as in paintings of beach goers or sailors on the sea.
I seek to understand and express what I see and feel, experimenting with various mediums. There are no medium boundaries for me. Materials of choice include oil and palette knife, watercolor, monoprints, monotypes, wood and wire.
It makes me happy when the viewer finds in my work a sort of pantheistic spirituality. Ultimately, we are dependent upon each other and nature to keep balanced.
