For as long as I can remember, I have been blessed with an ability to capture the likeness of an image or person. That was my motivation to study art at the University of Texas in Austin.
Through the study of art history and the exploration of contemporary galleries and art museums, I learned a new appreciation of art. The challenge for me, like many artists, is figuring out where one fits into the art world. As we ask ourselves, what is
the purpose of art?
For me, I seek to capture images or feelings that intrigue or have intrinsic
beauty. The energetic vibrations that flow throughout life, particularly inspire me.
The Art of Vibration
After spending 9 years in Taos, The Land of Enchantment, I gained a further appreciation for the vastness of landscape. From the Sangre de Cristos, to the high-desert below, natural life passes through it all.
More recently, I have explored the unseen energies of the natural world. This has pursuaded me to delve into the world of geometrics and abstraction.
My vibrational art series was inspired by the 7 major chakras, each one a visual expression of a human conscious state of being.
I also enjoy the simple presence of painting from my environment. Plein air, life drawing and character portraits draw me into the moment where I can engage in a direct visual conversation with the subject. These images transport me in time to the place where I first experienced the scene and energy.
