On display August 16 through September 12, 2011
As an artist I am constantly striving for peace and harmony through my art. I seek a balance in values and color that is as pleasing as nature itself. My medium is acrylic, inks, charcoal, collage and found objects on wood, paper and canvas from landscapes to figures in a realistic to non-objective style.
At the age of twelve I started my first formal art lessons at the Telfair Art Academy in Savannah, Georgia. Since then I have been seeking original ways of creating art through classes, schools, workshops and individual artists. Taking some of what I have learned and incorporating it into an ever-evolving style of my own. Art is part of who I am. I eat, breathe and dream it. As soon as I am filled with the creation of one piece, I am craving the next. My local scenes are filled with bright, bold colors that depict the nightlife of Jacksonville.
I also work in mixed media on large wood panels. This art is a reflection of the Florida landscape that I have come to love. Subconsciously, this new artwork displays my growing concern over environmental issues. Built up in layers and sanded between each one, my work shows depth, age and beauty that reach beyond a 2-D image. It draws the viewer in to see what lies beneath.
In Jacksonville, I am a member of several art associations and past president of the Jacksonville Watercolor Society. My work can be viewed at my studio located at 121 W Forsyth St., Archway Gallery in Atlantic Beach, Trends on Hendricks Avenue and Matthew’s Restaurant in San Marco.
