If the mind is allowed to wander
into uncharted territory, the unexpected will happen. This leads the work
to its full potential and allows the media to be mixed as the piece dictates.
The possibilities are endless as are efforts to investigate new avenues
of expression. An experimental component of random form is combined with
a solid foundation in composition and color emanating from a design background.
This approach to the work allows freshness of idea backed with years of
practical application in the studio. May the exuberance experienced in
its creation be shared by the viewer.
I live and work in central
Colorado. My artistic endeavors started early at preschool age when my
mother delivered a set of tempera paints to my room. The magic of mixing
two colors that produced a third were wondrous. After graduating from
the School of Architecture at Auburn University with a degree in Interior
Design, I began a 25 year career of designing professional and commercial
spaces while working within architectural firms and later as an independent
consultant. During that time, I attended courses at colleges and workshops
to develop my skills in painting and photography.
After moving to Colorado and
partnering with five other artists, I became partial owner/operator and
President of Articulation Gallery, Inc., an award-winning gallery representing
over 30 national artists. I now spend my time managing my studio in Salida,
Colorado while working in various mediums. Adapting new mediums and techniques
to the work as well as experimenting with old ones infuses the working
studio with a lively and exhilarating karma..
