I am a Detroit artist working in encaustic, acrylic, oil paintings and encaustic monotypes. My studio is 303 @ The Pioneer Building.
Deeply inspired by the beauty of flowers and landscapes, I push my subject to a place of gestural abstraction with sweeping gestures, layering curves, heightened by bold saturated tones. The process of mark making, color choice, and composition happens mostly subconsciously. It matures to a gestural dance revealing my utmost authentic voice; a dreamlike reconfiguration of emotional meanings.
The resulting energetic work shows a lush world, where nature is in constant celebration and invokes both my vision and feeling of a world where beauty and vulnerability are the touching keystones.
I have exhibited nationally and internationally and being represented in Germany, The Netherlands, and in the US.»
