artist statement

Creating Fine Art has always been a big part of my life. As a Graphic Designer I am always developing my own concepts and art to be used. I have a love for color, drawing and texture. These three loves really become apparent in my art work/paintings.
The French Impressionists as well as the Post-Impressionists have influenced my love of color, light and its effects and my drawing style. I have had extense training in drawing and painting and am intrigued as well as excited by viewing the masters, especially how they applied paint to the canvas. I like to use the ultra fine magic markers, it works well when drawing on top of the acrylic paint. Using raw canvas gives spontaneity to my paintings and gives a unique yet fresh look. I try to experiment with my art by not doing the same thing but to explore unique techiques. I am currently doing landscapes, landmarks and architecture.
My art is available through a variety of mediums, originals, Giclee Prints, Lazer Prints and Greeting cards. Art is an essential part of life that everyone should be able to afford and enjoy.
