I was a born and raised in a Texas coastal refining town. My mother was an interior designer and my father was a master builder and craftsman. Thus, artistic projects were a continuous “happening” on our dining room table, out in the yard or in the workshop stuffed with dozens of inspired, unfinished projects. The arts ran deep like a river of desire and imagination; work turned into a life of play within a vast field of possibilities.
Throughout my my artistic career, I have designed andhand-built adobe homes, constructed stained glass pieces for private and public spaces, sewn art-to-wear tailored clothing, and sculpted pit-fired ceramics. My latest passion is the creation of fluid acrylic pours. This leap into painting appears to be the apex of my artistic journey.
The dance between color and light and form has always sparked my creative endeavors. With fluid painting pours, this interplay can be uniquely presented. The paints are applied on various substrates and result in infinite designs. They can be layered, thrown, splattered, swirled, blown and tilted in their applications. Each pour is an absolutely singular, unrepeatable expression of “ chaotic beauty”. The mark of the Universe ‘s hand is in motion with each piece produced. This is abstract expressionism at work. Participating in this wildly spontaneous use of paints is now my full-blown obsession.
