ARTIST STATEMENT

Travel is a passion for me as well as my art. I suppose that living in a landlocked state such as Colorado, I seek out water as inspiration in travel and as a counterbalance in my paintings. I like the fact that 360 to 320 million years ago, Colorado was under a broad ocean. I think we are all inspired by water, especially the ocean; being near it, playing in it, swimming in it. For me, painting water; the patterns, light and color is exciting, and the memories of being submerged while diving puts me in a meditative state. It’s a feeling of calm, satisfaction in the moment and exhilaration. Just as physically immersing oneself in water can feel, painting can also when one gets in the “flow”. If I can bring attention to our love of ocean and of how our “civilization” is putting our oceans at risk, that is a major bonus.



ART METHOD

My work might be described as “transitional”. I like to approach the painting abstractly, but suggestive of nature. I start out with one of my underwater diving photos for a general idea, but then see where the painting spontaneously takes me. I expect my work to be viewed from a distance , so the patterns can be seen as a whole and the eyes complete the picture. I work in oil pastels on paper and also paintings in mixed media with acrylics, oil sticks and collage on canvas.
