My passion is creating beautiful original artwork that uplifts and inspires.
I was raised in a family with artistic talent. At an early age, I was encouraged to explore, , create and develop different forms of art. I started drawing and have always enjoyed working with color.
I love going to aquariums and zoos. Watching beautiful creations in colorful surroundings is what I enjoy most. It has a way of calming my soul.
A couple of years ago, I started experimenting with alcohol ink and instantly fell in love with the vibrant color and abstract design. Shortly after, I found another medium. I started experimenting with pouring acrylic paint. When done correctly, colorful cells magically form in wonderfully random swirls and patterns. It quickly became my favorite.
I was commissioned to do a three-panel ocean beach painting and it had a lot of wasted paint that dripped off the edge. It formed pools of paint that eventually dried and could be peeled off in small colorful sheets. My friend Leslie suggested I figure out how to use the extra paint. I create my favorite creatures from the extra paint and layer over the artwork to create a theme. This is the beginning of my current style.
