Get to Know the Austin Artist:
I am an established artist in the Round Rock/Austin area. I am a native of California. For many years I worked in various media, including photography, art glass, woodworking, and acrylics. After working in dimensional wall art, I have for some years been concentrating on acrylics on canvas. Color and texture are very important to me in the overall theme and direction each piece takes. a
ARTIST’S STATEMENT: "There is not a single true work of art that has not in the end added to the inner freedom of each person who has known and loved it" (Albert Camus). These words sum up why I work as an artist. I love color and design, the endless possibilities for interpretation and the need to share my vision and joy in creating art. Inspiration for working in this medium comes from many styles of the early 20th century, Abstract Expressionism, Cubism, Art Deco, as well as photographing nature in its symmetry and color. In creating art, I wish to bring to life visions of color and form that will inspire those who experience it.
