About the Artist

My work's focus is fine art abstract painting and mixed media. I emphasize color and texture, sculpt off the panel, and use a wide variety of quality, archival materials and techniques. My inspiration drives me to continuously experiment, move in new directions, and evolve.

 

After my early childhood in North Carolina and Ohio I've spent most of my life in Wisconsin and Minnesota and am currently based in the Milwaukee area.  Before delving into abstract mixed media I spent years with film photography (see my instagram link) and through this I learned to appreciate the play of light and color, the importance of composition, and believe it or not interesting aspects of working in 3 dimensions.  I received my degree in Business from the Carlson School at the University of Minnesota however I knew before graduating that my desire was to create visual art. Not attracted to the corporate world I chose the road less traveled to pursue my passion. I want to create works which impact people ... make them feel, think, take action.

 

I hope something I've done speaks to you in some way ... if it does then drop me a note, I'd love to hear about it!

I started working three dimensionally while still immersed in film photography. I learned a historic photographic printing process called Carbon Printing from the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY. This process leaves a relief of hills and valleys. The hills become shadows in the image, and are mounds of gelatin which are deposited on the surface. While the reliefs are made through the process and wash away the gelatin to reveal the highlights.

With a taste for artistic sculpting from photography and an urge to try something new, I ended up gravitating towards using oil paint and painting extremely impasto. That morphed into mixed media using glue to actually propel outward away from the panel with various structure including chain, washers and ball bearings. This diverse and intense journey has led me to refine my process, technique, and style ... and the journey continues!  

Thanks so much for taking the time to check out my work!
