As an artist I see the world around me as the gift of sight and a celebration of why we see in color. My focus has developed into creating inviting compositions leaning towards bold color and strong contrasts. For me the intensity generated by color, contrast, light and darkness, brings energy and life to the artwork. My paintings become an extension of everything about me, another language, and my hope is to contribute to the conversation and continuation of fine art.
Along the way.
Searching for a better understanding of the artistic compulsion I enrolled at Miramar Community College in San Diego, CA, and started with Art History to help answer a list of unanswered questions, such as; Why do people paint what they do? I continued with Life Drawing which so eloquently demonstrated the quality of a line, then fell in love with oils during Painting. At the invitation of my professor I participated in an exhibition, then continued my education studying landscape and still life painting at the San Diego Museum of Art. I was hooked! To this day I still have my student ID taped to my office wall as a reminder to never give up, that it's never too late, and to always find a way forward.
