I am a painter who works with real, surreal, and abstract images. I work with oil on canvas, acrylic, and acrylic ink on paper. I like to paint the human figure to capture past, and present moments. I prefer to paint musicians, and dancers because they both have the element of live sound, movement, and acting. That can also have these elements found on film, and in photography. This makes the study of their documentation accessible, and available to paint and draw live.
In my thought process I start from the most intense inspiration I feel that I must deal with immediately. It may range from mental, emotional or physical sensations. I use the techniques I have learned from the art teachers in painting and all the other arts that I have studied. Such as photography, acting, dance, & music. I apply these exercises while I am making my work so I can open up different gateways of energy. I like to discover how it can teach and show me new things while working with imagery and paint. I listen to music, look at pictures, watch films, and read to connect myself to the world. So that even though I am making the art I am truly always celebrating. I filter what I am communicating about from myself in combination with the inspiration I get from others. I go to live music, dance, and film shows. I do sketches capturing the live animation of the performers, musicians, choreographers, and filmmakers. I am always listening, watching and, connecting to the world around me. I like to fallow the connection and direction that the paint and the subjects show me as they also show the world. I like the essence of things that come from lessons in life that can be transferred into art. I listen to the sound of my heart and try to see what it is saying. And even though it's just me working I never feel alone.
