ABOUT THE ARTIST:
My art is focused on color in the abstract composition.My work frequently includes dynamic, sweeping brushstrokes of acrylic paint with bold color and texture.The colors of the natural world influence my pieces even when I don’t realize it – a memory from a trip or the color of pottery or the way the light hits the landscape.I find these memories stay with me and are an influence to creating an energetic quality.I am interested in how color makes us feel.
The feeling and energy are still there yet transformed into something new.I am thinking of visual relationships and meaning as I paint abstractly.Abstract art can be a language that translates through color and shape and there is a feeling and energy in the work as it takes on a life of its own.
I received a B.A, Degree in Art Studio and Art History from Kent State University.I also have an Art Teacher Credential from Montana State University.I live in Bozeman Montana.
