My choice of media ranges from pastels, acrylics often incorporating cardboard, paper, pictures, even such items as tiles, screws, money and any items that when creating art that I find interesting and reusable. I prefer using my hands and fingers when creating my art, for this allows me to thoroughly interact with the textures of each and every aspect of the media being used. Some of the concepts of my art is from nature, but mainly it is mentally based on my fears, emotions, about family, hurt, love, sadness, loneliness, happiness, and imagination. The ability to manifest what in in my mind to something that is significant, and tangible is what my art has allowed me to do. To express something deep within myself for others to observe, maybe seeing and invoking something in themselves that they never knew existed. I’ve spent sixteen years under the teaching of John Kevin Loesch at Toopine Studios located in Whiting, N.J. Artist that I admire are Jackson Pollock, Paul Gauguin, Harry Bernard, Vincent Van Gogh, and Jacob Lawrence. I am presently publishing a book, called it’s Not Easy Being Ordinary, a kooky memoir that entails essays, poems, quotes, and art by an extraordinary person.
I envision myself three years from now challenging my creativity on a larger and grander scale, experimenting with all kinds of mediums, combining different textures mastering my art on a higher plane. My mind is full of explosive ideas just aching to be expressed through my art. Hopefully, in the future the art that I express will be widely seen in galleries to be visually enjoyed by others.
