MEDIUM:Wooden Wall Art

Featured Image
Member Statement/Information

I like to make things. I am currently making wooden dimensional abstract art pieces; free standing as well as work that can hang on a wall. Taking a two-dimensional sketch and giving it a three-dimensional reality is a challenge. Yet, it is very rewarding mentally, physically, and emotionally.

For as long as I can remember I've enjoyed being out in nature more than anything else. I love to share the beauty that I see there and the fleeting emotion of the moment with others through my photography. I prefer black and white photographs because they challenge my creative and technical skills.

My studies of the American Color Field Movement are the inspiration for may paintings over the last few years; the way these artists simply apply a palate of rich saturated colors affects me deeply. In my own work, I seek to explore the emotional resonances of abstract color composition.
