"My appreciation for abstract paintings and sculptures has been around since I can remember. There is something so instinctual for me about abstract art. You are taking away the literal and expected to assess the art with your emotions instead of just your eyes. It's why I love experimenting with new color combinations, textures and lines.

Abstract art can seem intimidating or pretentious since there is no subject - at times it can even seem ethereal. I want my art to be accessible and understood by the feelings it gives the viewer. In a world that is over-saturated by negativity, I want to put visually cheerful art on display. It is my respite when I create and blend the colors on the canvas, but I want the viewer to have respite when looking at the canvas."

Loved working on 'Iris Garden' painting during the transition from winter to spring! My inspiration: lush iris gardens bursting with purple and yellow goodness!! Find the 12x12 print in my Etsy Shop.
Finished the photo shoot and now the original paintings are ready for sale! I love this painting especially now that we are so close to Spring! The movement and colors are energetic - it gets my creativity going!

About

Creating cheerful, beautiful art

First I want to say ‘thank you’ for visiting my online studio and viewing my artwork. I love being in the studio mixing colors and feeling inspired by nature.

The best way for me to explain exactly how I paint is this: I will become deeply inspired by, let’s say as an example, fall trees. The thought won’t leave my head and so I reminiscence. And as I think back on all of the experiences with fall trees, I paint. I put up layers to build up the backgrounds that, to me, begin to form that scene. They are the most important part of the painting for me. The values have to be perfect and the depth needs to be ‘just so’ for it to work. Then I add the colors from my memories where my artistic instinct tells me to put them. These are the brushstrokes of color. As the painting starts to come to life, it feels like the visual impression of the memories in my head. It’s all the best of the colors and feelings of fall trees that I’ve experienced. But it’s abstracted because it’s easier to absorb in the moment when there is nothing literal. But the colors are still fall leaf color so it’s not entirely abstract. There’s just no firm subject. And I like that because it lets your mind wander and get lost in the scene.
