Emerging Artist: St. Louis, Missouri
My abstract work is inspired by chaos, joy, the mundane, and the heartache of life. My background is in figurative art and portraiture, however I enjoy the freedom and expression of abstract art.
I seek to capture individual elements of nature, everyday surroundings, or emotion in an abstract form. My mixed media pieces explore line, texture, and color. Often, I am inspired by the mundane images that pass by, be it power lines on a long drive, overpasses, or rocks beaten by wave and wind. We experience emotion daily, not realizing when some of those emotions are triggered by the forms and images around us. I want to reduce what I see and feel to intersecting lines and colors that also evoke emotion, even if I am the only one for which it does.
