Artist Statement

 

I am continually being inspired by the world around me, I enjoy infusing and interpreting images with feeling and emotion. I love exploring vibrant intense use of color. I work finding the right mediums, thick textures and use of color – vibrant and intensity for the desired effect. The acrylic painting process is very gratifying.

This series of paintings is based on a poem, “The Canticle of Brother Sun” by St. Francis of Assisi. The poem pays homage to the glories of creation. My ambition is to surround the viewer with bright, vibrant, beautiful images in which they can meditate, reflect, enjoy, and share in my journey and experiences of nature through light, color and movement.

Through this series of paintings, I wanted to express simplicity and serenity. Inspiration is key throughout the creative process as well as hard work and discipline; taking raw materials of canvas and paint and making them into an amazing new ensemble.

I was inspired by the poem and also this quote, “Men are like trees; each one must put forth the leaf that is created in him” Henry Ward Beecher.

Again, I want others to see, appreciate, and be sensitive to the beauty around us, and I believe I have accomplished it in this series of paintings.
