Experimentation

“There is no such thing as a failed experiment; only experiments with unexpected outcomes.” – Buckminster Fuller Experimentation and art go together like coffee and steamed milk. However creating things as an artist means you sometimes have to break free of your old patterns and do some things differently such as experimenting with changing materials, styles or mediums. Painting can be a grand adventure into the unknown and as an artist I love to explore that realm. Never be afraid […]

Color

“It is not what you know about color but the way you see it and feel it that makes its meaning important, because beautiful colors together resonate with your psyche and feed your soul.” – Gretchen Schauffler Color is one of the elements in our lives that can change our perceptions of reality. No matter how complicated this world gets there is always the undeniable beauty of nature and its perfect color. I draw a lot of my inspiration for […]

Dare to be Creative

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it; Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe You are not creating alone or in a vacuum. Art is a collaboration between the artist and the soul, creative force, the divine, higher power or whatever you envision it to be. You would be amazed at what this alliance can do as long as you are willing to be the channel for creative expression.Train your heart […]

Giving

“I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.” – Maya Angelou Artists have been charged with the duty of transforming the world through various media. We have the freedom to express joy, warmth, and love through our art. The result of that expression is we grow closer together and we attract the world to our doors. We can bring peace and harmony to the world. That is the calling of our art. Recently, […]

Dreams

“Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.” – Pamela Vaull Starr Dreams historically have been catalysts for artists, writers, musicians, and even inventors. A great amount of my creativity I attribute to my dreams. Dreaming is often taken for granted in our society. Being borne of human consciousness and imagination, dreams provide an endless stream of ideas and inspiration that inform our creativity and then our artistic expression. It is […]

New Beginnings

“Be transformed by the renewing of your mind” – The Apostle Paul Spring is the time of year for new beginnings and renewal of the spirit. It serves as a continual reminder that all things are reborn. This painting titled, “Celestial” represents many new points of life growing up from the creative spirit. In this painting it is evident that life energy is appearing from beneath the surface. The spirit of renewal comes forth every spring for that purpose, to […]

The Art of Possibility

“The moment of enlightenment is when a person’s dreams of possibilities become images of probabilities.” – Vic Braden We live in a world of infinite possibilities. Art is one medium that reveals the concept of possibility. The purpose of my paintings is to provoke thought in the viewer. By conveying creative energy onto canvas, the essence of my creative thoughts manifests and transfers to the imagination of the viewer. My paintings are like a net that captures the fish of […]

Reflection on 2011

Creativity has certainly been present in my life and my art during the past year. As the year comes to a close, I am filled with gratitude for the experiences and opportunities I was able to have. While observing my work I see a lot of feelings and emotions integrated in the colors weaving through the canvas. The hue of my life has been exposed in the temperature and contrast of these paintings. In reflecting on this year’s accomplishments a […]

One With the Art

We live in a world of busy people. We have so much “to do” and yet we never get it all done. Art gives us the opportunity to step into another world and make a connection with another reality. When I paint, I listen to music and let go of all of the cares and worries of the day. I step into my creative reality. In that reality there is no right or wrong. There is no blueprint for what […]

The Art of the Subconscious

I always think it is so interesting how the subconscious mind will reveal itself through ones creativity. I find what tends to flow out from me will sometimes emulate those artists whose work I have always admired. Although this is not a deliberate attempt to copy, I find that some of my work will in ways resemble or at least have the same feeling as some of the masters that I have been able to see in museums around the […]
