Emerging Artist

Over the decades the creativity in the arts has permeated every area of my life with painting being the dominant one. I have explored a variety of mediums and enjoyed them all. In 2016 looking for a way to move into abstraction I came across Alcohol Inks. I was captured by the brilliant colors and fluidity of the medium and seeing how the colors and the alcohol interacted with each other in magical ways Although I have used various surfaces to apply the inks, impervious quality of Yupo Paper has been my predominant choice.

In all of my artwork, the love of the organic natural world, the subtle and the brilliant colors, the lines and shapes provide the impetus for my creative expression.
