I've always held an interest in the process of creating. It begins when I venture into the wild and then follows me into the studio. Exploring materials, ideas, and color to discover something mesmerizing for the viewer.
Creativity is inventive when we continuously explore and experiment. I believe in taking risks and that curiosity facilitates discovery. For myself, painting is playful, spontaneous, and a celebration of one of a kind mark making.
Sustainability is a very important aspect of my work so I use sustainable resources as often as possible. For small to medium size paintings I choose to repurpose a variety of wood panels and canvases into paintings. The printing and framing company I use is also committed to sustainability.
Twist Restaurant is located in Breckenridge, Colorado. I maintain this exhibition year round and have displayed my work here since 2017. Maintaining an art show at Twist for multiple years is one of my greatest career highlights. The space allows for flow from one painting to the next giving the restaurant a cohesive, gallery feeling.
