Artist Statement :”I am a Colorado artist. My goal is to create a beautiful design and a heartfelt image as that always pushes me and excites me as a painter. I love exploring the elements of fine art: shape, value, color, line, texture and edges. My Inner Landscapes are the outgrowth of my discovery as I vary and explore the effects of gradations on these elements. I always paint with my heart wide open to what I think is beautiful while taking my viewer on a journey into the light. I am passionate about light and color -- I enjoy layering paint to see what I can create with regard to color, depth of field, texture and a glow of light. Along the journey, I am compelled to challenge myself, take risks and elicit an uplifting, peaceful, heartfelt response.
