I live and work in the big woods of Indianola. I bring a fresh approach to my expressive, abstract digital paintings and modernist shapemaking prints. My experience as a designer and illustrator, and many years of drawing and painting study with expressive painter Barbara Fugate inform my work. Recently I completed my third Instagram 100 day art challenge, creating and posting an original abstract daily.

I offer limited edition archival prints in various sizes. They have a rich and vivid silkscreen like surface and mid-century vibe. Sophisticated use of color and composition sets the work apart and makes for refreshing art eye candy for interior spaces.

Artist Statement

Abstraction is my passion. I work intuitively, reacting to the shapes, colors, and marks to create fresh and evocative modernist artwork. I leave it to the viewer to dive in, pause, and discover their own mood and meaning.

I use and am inspired by, new media digital tools, platforms for global online sharing such as Instagram, and fine art digital printing. Some of my influences include Matisse’s cut-outs, mid-century art and design, and the paintings of Richard Diebenkorn, Stuart Davis, and David Hockney.

I look to Art to inspire, surprise, and bring forth a wave of feeling that reminds us of our wondrous existence. I feel it in my process of creating these works. I hope the viewers of my work share in this sense of satisfaction and wonder.
