Background in a pinch....After 16 years working for the state as an auditor..."I know, funny huh?", starring at blank gray prison colored walls, AND using the wrong side of my brain for waaaaay to long....I decided to leave and chase my "TRUE PASSION", a calling, if you may...working as a muralist. I have had the pleasure of "drawing" on many private home walls in the past...but now, I am so privileged to share my art with the public...Life just can't get any better than that!.....
I also love to paint on canvas, "Big Canvases", as well...skies the limit, and...cheaper than therapy! It's a personal journey of how I'd paint the world if I could choose the colors!
Oh, and now I'm a welder! Playing with fire...scary I know! My first project was a 12" x 14" sheet of rusted metal, an old gate stake entwined by grape vines and painted to imitate patina...loved it...but, not big enough. My second project was an 8 foot tree, "Now We're Talkin'"....next, a 7 foot dancer....self portrait some believe!... Way Fun! I'm also getting into welding my own frames and currently working on a few sculptures that combine my love for metal and canvas!!
Fire, steel, canvas, throw in some paint and you have the makings for a GREAT DAY!!!
Perhaps my favorite....having the chance to share my visions through workshops for "beginners" and "better"...I love bringing to others, the amazing feeling you get when beautiful shades of paint hit the canvas bringing to life something, that moments before, were just faint images of your own thoughts!!! A colorful, visual diary for all to read!
IT'S SO AWESOME!
Thanks for stopping by...and have a very COLORFUL day!
