I create art the way I feel about life which is cheerful, spontaneous, and joyful. My art explores the imagination through color, shape, and form. I am in constant search of the next line and bend the polymer clay can do and the story it can tell. The goal of my polymer clay art is to bring the story from the flat surface of the page into your soul. I want the viewer to touch and feel the shapes.
I also paint with oils which allows me to explore color, shape, and form in a more minimalistic way while maintaining spontaneity. Here again, my art reflects a happy view of the world. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and depth of the work. My paintings and polymer clay work consist of building layers and sometimes textures. This adds to the dimensional aspect of the artwork. However, some works of art are created with simple shapes where the color defines the feel of the art.
I am particularly fond of the great art masters of 18th and 19th century. My art attempts to bring the romanticism of that time period forward to today's interpretation of art and design.
