Descrizione Opera / Biografia

I invest in the creation of a piece of art to convey what I have inside: my thinking, my emotions, my life, my essence and my soul.
When I create a new piece of art, what I feel smoothly becomes real. Once my creativity is ready, my vision becomes clear and flows out onto the canvas.
For me it is important to create what I feel. My abstract art is an extension of myself, full of passion and emotion: happy, sad, angry, calm, all these playing a part in my creative process. The sights running through my mind create the desire to paint in a more free-flowing, expressive form, coming from a part of me that is vulnerable and raw.
My mixed media work can have many or few elements within it. It depends on how I feel that day. I move the paint around the canvas in a strong decisive manner, knowing my emotions are guiding me. A few moves of my utensils create a window into my soul; open and free from outside influences, yet my emotions have their roots there. The finished piece is a complex creation of mixed emotions, coming together to form a cohesive piece of art.
The inspiration that I take from experiencing life creates a feeling that continues to inspire me. I don’t think, as an artist, that is something I could ever lose.
