Born in Santa Monica, California, living in the Los Angeles area.
I believe Art has the ability to take humanity to a higher level because it engages us to feel and understand.
My work directly responds to the surrounding environment, emotional expression and the world around me and beyond, streams of color from nature’s palette.
Line is beauty in its simplest form expressing energy, emotional and spiritual vibrations, the most intuitive means of perceiving and understanding our environment. Most importantly, the established use of vertical lines in my work emphasizes and illustrates the fiber structure I see in our Universe.
The paintings become architectural elements of line and color, ever changing vertical lines created by shadows, light and color. I see my work applied in architectural scale as environmental art. Color derives from the spectrum of light and interacts in the eye with the spectral sensitivities of the light receptors. Color is the essence of our perception of the physical world Line is beauty in its simplest form expressing energy, emotional and spiritual vibrations; the most intuitive means of perceiving our environment.
Where the rainbow starts, a journey begins.
My current projects are Earthly Elements, Cosmic Elements and Mixed Media
I have shown in galleries in Venice, Santa Monica, and Santa Clarita, California.
