I’m incredibly passionate about the arts and it’s endless possibilities. I love to use color and texture to create artwork that’s unique, colorful and sometimes thought provoking. Growing up in the Boulder Colorado area made thinking outside the box easy. I like to try new things and explore utilizing different materials in my art. Some of my favorite pieces have had concrete, clothing and even trash. There’s so many incredible Denver artists that help me come up with new ideas for my own artwork.
Art to me is more than the art itself. It’s really about the art community and the lives the art can touch. Art can make us feel good and experience several emotions when viewing/perceiving. I’ve probably given away as much art as I’ve sold and really enjoy when someone connects with my work. Overall, it’s just a lot of fun and I love meeting new people within the art community. Artists and non-artists alike. I’m excited to be a part of the Denver art community and want to help it grow even more.
I have been drawing since childhood. In high school I visited classes at an art school. When it came time to choose an institution of higher learning, I switched to computer design to get a degree in the field of information technology in design. I have been doing graphic design and web design for 8 years.
But a few years ago I decided to return to drawing and acrylics. In art school we painted in gouache. Therefore, it was easier for me to start painting with acrylic paints.
I love to draw bright positive pictures, but I am still searching for my personal style. Recently I tried to paint using liquid acrylic and cover the paintings with epoxy. It was very exciting.
Drawing gives me pleasure and helps me to feel the shape of objects better. I like to transfer what I see around me to the canvas.
Sometimes I also look through Instagram and find interesting ideas for pictures. It is important not to put any restrictions on your work, you can draw absolutely anything! The main thing is to enjoy the process.
I try to set aside an hour or two in the morning before any other work for the day.
When the day begins with drawing, it will be a wonderful day.
