There are many life experiences that cannot be portrayed in representational art. Expressing emotions is at the heart of my abstract work in acrylic and mixed media.
Music often plays a role in my inspiration. Songs trigger memories and emotions of times past and present. Sometimes the painting comes first and then the music solidifies it. Sometimes it’s the other way around.
The feeling of paint, its various textures and adding subtle and not-so-subtle effects, allows me to express the subject and engage the viewer.
