Into the forest I go to lose my mind and find my soul...
Art is an intermingling of the outside world and my own intuitive thoughts and ideas. I often start with just a vague notion of something I want to create. It may be inspired from a flash of inspiration, some idea or subject matter I want to explore or a material I want to experiment with further that is then coupled with organic subject matter; such as the human figure, animals, nature, night sky, etc. Often this marriage creates a surrealistic or dream like feel to my work, not quite abstract but not realistic either, an in between state of logic and imagination.
The majority of my art work is mixed media drawings. I use a variety of mediums such as charcoal, conte', ink,watercolor,acrylic paint, graphite ect.The surfaces I use are paper and canvas becuase I love the feel of the surface as I draw. I recently ben exploringadding 3D texture to my worh using 3D print objects, as well as, traditional mediums. .
