Hi! I'm a fine artist residing in mountains of western North Carolina. I received an Associate of Fine Arts degree for digital/computer art from Cape Fear Community College and am working toward a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of North Carolina, Asheville for sculpture. I moved to North Carolina in 2001 after service with military left me looking for a different pace of life.
Both of my parents have a very strong background in and supporting the arts so my life has been connected to the art world for as long as I can remember. My father, who has spent his life repairing classic cars, has a strong background in design and engineering. A constant dreamer, he used oil paints to create impressionistic renderings of places he wanted to visit or emotionally charge the sides of all my toy vehicles. To the dismay of my mother, he taught me that every surface could be turned into something else with a little pigment and patience. The visual arts have a strong foundation in my mother as well, but it's the performance arts that have their strongest hold on her and my youth. Going from dance studio, to professional show, to seedy club exposed me the a variety of colors, smells and sounds that all culminated around an artistic expression from the human body. My mother taught me that all outward human expression comes from within. She inspired me to first look within knowing that art is the most human form of communication.
While my work has been expanding and evolving since childhood, my art is an attempt to understand and communicate the many varied conflicts that simultaneously coexist within the human psyche. I use liquid plastic and ink to create these impressions. Photography is the least abstract of my work. My sculpture and painting pieces have become increasingly abstract and impressionistic with my paintings being the most indefinate. I create all of my works by layering various different types of inks and plastics together over time. My pieces take anywhere from 1 week to 1 year to complete depending on how complex the piece is and how many layers are needed to complete it.
