Mixed Media - Intuitive painting
I am a mixed media artist from Louisville, Kentucky, with a love for vivid color and the intuitive painting process. I never know what I am going to paint. I drip, splatter, and paint with my fingers or found objects. I take my glasses off, let my eyes go out of focus and look. If I see something, I want to let the viewer see it also. Michelangelo's quote sums it up best, "I saw the angel in the marble and I carved until I set her free."
I have loved drawing, painting, writing, and photography from a young age. I have studied all forms of visual art in college and dabbled in them from 2001-2011. In 2012, I found my true passion, combining all of them in what is referred to as mixed media art.
The words used in my work are my own and come to me at some point during the painting process. I stamp my words using 100-year old typesets that I found at a yard sale. The letters allow me to convey a message to the audience of what I am feeling during the process.
