After September 11, 2001, I was laid off from my corporate sales job of 18 years. It was at that time I "thought" I heard a voice within me to paint. Strange as the voice was (I have never painted before), I listened and gave over all my future corporate energies to make a bold move and pursue my new dream of being a self taught artist....risky, eh? Well, much to my surprise (as well as that of my family and friends), my art career took off in ways unimaginable. I say, “if you don't believe in the voice of God or being connected to your inner spirit...we need to talk.” I have seen first hand countless doors of opportunity fly wide open for me, what laid beyond those doors was this new person, this artist inside I never ever knew existed... all because I took the chance of listening to that small voice inside.
I deconstruct and reconstruct layers of roofing tar, plaster, found objects, metals, symbols, rich acrylic colors and words to create an inspirational and emotionally driven paintings. Sometimes playful, gritty or with an urban feel, my paintings capture the essence of what an individuals dreammight look like if inspired to take that leap of faith.
