What Inspires Me…
Connection, change, transformation, acceptance and imperfections
My art is a balance of process and end product. It is not neat, tidy or predictable. I choose abstract forms and various media to communicate the unpredictability of being human. This is most represented in my process, which in turn becomes evident in the finished work.
By setting an intention and then adding the unpredictable flow of medium, water, or my wandering mind, I allow the image to literally take on another form. The altered form represents an altered life.
The twists and turns change us, and in the same fashion change the work. They take us places we would not go, both for the better and the worse. But in the end, acceptance of the imperfections along side the beautiful moments makes the whole.
What Does Rust Have To Do With It…
When I see a piece of rusted metal out in the elements of the world, it makes me think of the spiritual journey that we all take. The metal is so new and untouched, but over time becomes coated with what the elements have to offer. This rust changes the very composition of the metal. It evolves to become something different. This rust even rubs off on other things it touches. We, like rusted metal, have the ability to evolve and affect others along the way. It is my sincere intent that my art rubs off a bit into your world.
Join me in the journey.
