Grosse Pointe Park, MI
I currently do abstract and non-objective art using primarily pastels, mixed media and the computer as my mediums. I prefer to make sketches using the Adobe Creative Suite programs. I find that by using the computer to create art, I can work quickly and thus increase my creative outlet. I work spntaneously; creating form, color and composition as I go along. Exploring the use of improvisation in the creative process, and the ability to work intuitively is the main focus of my work. Like many artists, my ultimate goal is to create art that is visually stimulating, pulling the audience toward it and perhaps moving them in an emotional way. Some of my artistic influences are: Georgia O'Keeffee, Mara Friedman, Matisse, Picasso, Paul Klee, Chagall, Kandinsky, Barbara Kruger, Pop Art and Op Art.
