Painter Bay Area
I manipulate tinted epoxy resin to create abstractions. I begin each piece by choosing the colors. The colors reflect a feeling but can also impact my emotional self. As I pour, a form begins to appear on the surface and a dialogue begins. These forms are similar to characters in a play. They speak to me and guide me to create their shape. Eventually, they interact and engage with one another. There is an unspoken language between them, one I cannot hear but instead, feel. The language has an emotional value that taps into a different part of our brain. The challenge in creating this type of abstraction is leaving the emotion unidentified. With each artwork, my intent is to create an experience. I allow the viewer to think, feel and find their unique significant meaning.
