Medium Oil on Canvas, Mixed Media
I strive to make memories from the ordinary and celebrate the commonplace, specializing in “making something from nothing.” As an artist, I inject vibrant color into everyday subjects in my paintings. As a graphic designer & product developer, I love the challenge of grasping a concept and creating something one can touch and feel. In employing an impressionistic, painterly style and a vibrant color palette, I am not afraid of color! In changing one’s viewpoint, life’s mundane “same olds” are expressed in dynamic color. My intention goes beyond creating pleasing pictures, and I look for connections in developing series of artworks. Art captures fleeting moments within day-to-day experiences. I seek to portray my sense of wonder in sensing Gods’ hand in creating images that evolve from seeing only darkness, then glowing light, and vivid color.
This inaugural showing of my F.R.O.G. series of paintings is also the unveiling my children’s book that I illustrated: Fredrick the Frog, a Life Cycle Story. From a squiggly slimy ball of jelly to a leaf-hopper, watch Fredrick the Frog grow up in a lush green pond. Along the way, he makes friends and discovers new things he can do as his body changes. An artfully illustrated book celebrating God’s perfect plan in nature’s life cycle.
