As a Southern California artist,my current work centers on people. I used to think I was a square peg, but I think we all feel that way. I draw people to discover a part of myself in them, to tie our common threads together and pay homage to our differences. This is my contribution to society.
I'm all about the work. I use live sketches created while riding the metro, cell phone references taken on impulse, old photos, my son, my dog, and even my artist friends. I utilize the images and my own stream of consciousness, drawing and painting into each piece. My view of people and the world is perceived in this earthly stew.
My art is my experience: Day-to-day living, observation, interaction, listening, and connecting. I enjoy people and their stories.
I am obsessed by pattern, so my work often has a sense of motion to it, especially the floors. The floors or foreground represents the journey we all take.
Process is a huge part of my practice. I love mixing colors and have been compared to colorist Pierre Bonnard. I never worry about the result, as this is a projection of a future, which none of us knows. I do the work and the shows follow. My biggest joy is painting or drawing for hours quietly.
I sketch, write, and paint, swirling colors around in a quilt of life, for each viewer to walk on.
