I am a maker!
Since early childhood I have been driven to make art and create functional and none functional objects. For me it doesn’t really matter what materials I use I love them all; from a pencil, paint, wood to plants in my garden each material is a vehicle to create something out of.
For all of my life I have been drawn to the landscape around me. The landscape can be trees, plants, architecture, and objects, for myself I see them a series of abstract marks, values, shapes and colors. I find myself fascinated by their inter relationships; how they create movements, rhythms and how ones eye perceives / feels the energy created.
When I am painting or engaged in the process of making, my focus is that moment in time, the rhythm of making marks, the magic of seeing a relationship for the first time and the running of all the energy one can muster in the moment of seeing and discovery. The smell, the tactile sensation of the materials, and the dance of creation – these are the things that make me make art.
