Acrylic on PVC
My paintings represent themselves, rather than being representational. Forms are subconsciously assimilated from the world of things and sometimes an earlier painting. These sources are intuitively assimilated with concern to develop a visual space with tension between the shapes and the colors.
I have always loved to paint with acrylic, though my main means of expression is music. I discovered Acrylic pouring a few years ago and fell in love with it. I love that I don't necessarily know the outcome of a painting, an idea of painting...it is a lot like improvisation in music. People get to see what they want, I love abstract. Now, it is also a way of meditating in silence but with colors.
Ceramics and Fused Glass
The art of manipulating clay with my hands has been fascinating and has kept me interested and inspired for well over forty years. I began adding glass to clay and was introduced to the art of glass fusing, which is layering colored glass and firing it in a kiln. I also love to teach anyone who wants to learn these techniques in my home studio.
