Artist Statement

Posted by on March 1, 2013 at 11:18 am.

My inspiration to paint is a God-given gift that I cherish.   I find myself compelled to improvise & experiment with my art; this makes it genuine & unique.

Often people experience an emotional response to my artwork, and this profoundly affects me.   When someone connects with a painting, it affirms a deep conviction I have that I have found my Calling in this life.

I am an abstract impressionist painter.  Rather than create a literal image, I seek to capture a feeling or experience.  This way the viewer is more likely to discover something that is personally meaningful to them.  It is with great humility that I reflect upon the beauty & serenity my paintings portray.

My work is an organic collection of landscapes, seasons, nature & essence.  I am as likely to find inspiration in the simplicity of a rock, as I am in the majesty of a mountain range.

In contemplating my journey as an artist, I can’t even imagine where I will be in a few years’ time.  With so much passion, determination & commitment, my journey is sure to be an exhilarating one!

———————————————————–

Having studied texture mediums from all over the world for about 20 years, I have several mineral based textures that I incorporate into the majority of my paintings. All are water based and environmentally friendly, natural products (and none are drywall mud!). Many have marble powders and limestone in them.
In addition, I use the “Golden” Professional line of Acrylic-based textures (some of my favourite are the Pumice, glass bead gel, crackle, tar gel).
Acrylic paints & glazes 80% of the time; mineral (powder) pigments & mica powders 20% of the time.
For those times that I use Resin in my art, it is always 2-part, environmentally friendly, professional quality resin. I have a few different product lines I draw from.
