I received my masters in art from Morehead State University in 1994, and I have created original oil paintings from my artist studio in Louisville, KY, since 1995.
Artistically, my concentration is in creating original acrylic or oil paintings, with mixed media. My work has evolved from rural landscapes to abstraction over the years. Nature still influences my work, however, the overlaying of color transparencies is my main focus. Simply stated, I create abstract art focused on color relations and their contrasts.
An inspiration to creating abstract artwork, for me, is my desire to explore aspects of color theory and composition. I also rely on the audible and emotional influences music contributes to each piece guiding the activity of line and movement within the oil painting.
