About Me

Art possesses the power to make you stop and allow your mind to wander; to see the unseen.  I believe all human beings should pause and take a moment to notice all of the small, yet incredibly important details so often taken for granted.

 

Smell the roses…...breathe in life. 

 

Hold onto an extra moment to bask in the sun before retreating indoors.

 

Or watch the moon rise.

 

Embrace the wonders that make life worth living.

 

These overlooked places are where I tend to find my inspiration.  The journey home from work isn’t a sea of cars and taillights, it’s the chance to witness the vibrant colors of a sunset’s scattered rays through the windshield. Beautiful days at the beach with my family lead to discovering grooves and patterns carved into the sand, unveiled by low tide.  Dried flowers long past their prime, offer an exceptional secret beauty in their intricate folds and crevices, the lovely structure that held such potential, does again. Once inspiration meets canvas, I feel life is given again to these fleeting moments. 

Words also provide inspiration within my work. As people, we are connected to them, we feel them, live by them. A simple word or phrase can become a mantra, a way to tell the story of a unique life, or a way to set the path for the future.  While some people shout their story from the mountaintops or keep it locked in a vault, I apply them to canvas. These words lie within the ambiguity of lines and shapes, sometimes enhanced by the application of color. Each piece gives rise to a multitude of interpretations all based on the personal perspective of the viewer. Words of Art is where the power of artistry becomes entwined with the mind and the soul. 

While a picture can be worth a thousand words, these pieces actually speak. Some are single words, others, phrases. Presented in stark, bold black and white, each are actually an overlapping of letters, surrounded in imagery. I found myself creating pieces that had personal meaning to me, but then realized the thoughts were universal. Perhaps there is a piece that holds your personal mantra. Imagine seeing that image that spoke to you, reminding you to pause, as it silently hangs on your wall.

In unveiling Words of Art, I finally decided to share one of my artforms originally relegated to sketchbooks and bar/restaurant napkins.  This was how “Visually Verbose” came to be. (Credit for those exact words go to my best friend, my sister from another lineage, Carrie.) (Even though we totally brainstormed it together, she just had a thesaurus.)

I invite you to experience the world as I see it, to discover something that may have gone amiss. 

Escape the mundane.
