Through the use of color, shape, and movement I hope to actively engage the viewers imagination into understanding the essence of my art. If “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” then “Art is in the imagination of the beholder.” The feeling and emotions generated by a work of art can only come from within the mind and memory of the viewer. I find abstract art is wonderful medium for self-exploration for both the artist and the viewer.
I began my artistic career as an acoustic vocalist using energy, vibration, and the colors of sound to communicate with my audience. Everything that makes up our universe is composed of energy in motion. Vocal music is ephemeral by nature, because sound is created by breath, amplified by emotion and energy, experienced by the audience, and then is dissipated in the ethers.
As sound vibrates so does color. Different colors vibrate at different rates. Visual Art differs in that a painting is tactile, something the viewer can hold in their hands. I believe that the energy in movement manifests every emotion or object in the process of its creation. In my vision of Abstract Art, we are all witnessing energy in movement as it is created. If the viewer allows their mind to open to the energy of the artist, they can sympathetically vibrate with the artist’s true intention in a given work.
I was born and raised in a small rural community in Michigan. I began my art education at the University of Michigan and continued to study painting and drawing in New York City and Los Angeles. Currently my works are in private collections in Canada, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sheridan, and New York.
For the last 50 years I have enjoyed painting and exploring the realm of Abstract Art. Now open your mind and enjoy.
