I am a multi-media artist...
...known for using vibrant colors and signature repetitive art marks that come alive in each of my abstract paintings to evoke a happy feeling by the viewer. I paint using alcohol inks and acrylic paint on different substrates, including plexiglas, aluminum, wood, and clayboard which all give different effects to the painting.
I am constantly living and working by my mantra...stay happy, and be positive! I bring this to my art.
As an artist, making abstract expressionism is about the journey of bringing positivity, happiness and fun to my day. It’s a way to express my inner self, curiosity for learning by creating and expressing my feelings on the canvas and doing what I love.
My inspiration for The First Ward is Blooming art installation arose in early 2016 when I was creating a very colorful hanging art sculpture. The sculpture was made up of over 100 up-cycled plastic water bottles cut into flower shapes.
The creation of the piece, motivated me to create a larger scale outdoor art installation that could be attached to a chain link fence and made up of approximately 10,000 plastic bottles. My goal was to invite the Houston Community to collect the bottles and create the art installation with me.
