My background in art and anthropology, along with Kandinsky-inspired abstract art training at The La Veta School of the Arts in Southern Colorado have both informed my work. My paintings represent the energy essence of animals, landscapes, and images from cultures around the world. My technique can include layering of charcoal drawings, textures, pastels, and acrylics on unsealed wet canvas, which is then dried, stretched, and sealed. The amazing thing about this technique, which sometimes begins blindfolded, is the spontaneity and symbolic content of the art, which seems to come directly out the Universal Unconscious.
