I love the richness of oils as a medium and the depth of colour. I am largely influenced by the weather, and enjoy expressing the various moods and colour themes.
I was intrigued when introduced to needle felting with wool in 2014, and fell in love with its sustainability, endurance and beauty. Now I create whimsical photorealistic portraits of the incredible animals in our world.
Treetop views or drifting in the water-column slow my pulse and free my mind. I lean into these resonant experiences for inspiration. The themes I use offer narratives ranging from the joyous to the ambivalent.
Vibrant, bold and quirky, my mixed media/collage paintings are meant to bring joy. I hand paint papers, tear them into the shapes of my drawing, and collage them onto wood panel after painting the sky.
Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.
My paintings are a continuous narrative weaving together memories, life experiences and transitions. It is always my hope that my art leaves room for the viewers’ imagination and interpretation, and it sparks their soul.
I love the pulse of creativity, capturing impactful monochrome photographs and realizing colorful whimsical abstracts. Though published, exhibited and awarded, great artistry is expressing reality and imagination that captivates, inspires or informs to enrich lives.
As a visual storyteller, the power of art to heal and to connect us to each other are the foundational principles of my work. Each painting illustrates a story within me, whether fleeting or otherwise.
Car trips in adverse Wyoming winter conditions provide window scenery of moving shapes and textures of snow, ice and sleet. Cold wax with oil paint assists in replicating those visions and sensations.
Painting Alla Prima, inspired by The Impressionists and following techniques learned from digital tutorials, I found my own style. I aspire to find the essence of the scene and invite the viewer to find their own story.
I paint from my own imagination and follow a feeling, an instinct. Underlying my work patterns of thoughts, emotions and stories might be seen; however, my art is pure abstraction inspired by infinity.
I make stunning photographs through the microscope of chemicals, wine and beer. Who says chemistry can’t be beautiful!
Go green with Green Art designed by nature as part of my creations. I draw green landscapes to remind us how important it is to preserve our natural world because nature is all we have.
These vibrant and colourful oil and wax paintings are my response to a highly disrupted world; to “…strip the artwork of all life except for my own internal meanderings.” – Ninth Street women
Preserved in the Syrian city Dura-Europos was a trove of art closest to biblical times; this ancient work defies Judeo-Christian and art conventions. I have been trying, in paint, to carry forward this lost culture.
My pieces are mainly inspired by the captivating diversity in nature which I capture with my camera. I look to bring new experiences for my viewers and aspire to create positive and curious imagery.
I give my paintings a majestic grandeur inspired by lingering on interior moments, and bring them to life with soft gestures and brilliant acrylic color.
I’ve been experimenting with ink on wood panel which I then cover with a coat of clear resin. The ink has unlimited possibilities. The vibrancy of the colors is wonderful, especially when highlighted by resin.
The natural world found in the city, by happenstance or cultivated, inspires me. I’m often drawn to the created and protected natural habitats that we build to save our environment and to save ourselves.
I inlay my art with natural crystals and their sands to create “The Shimmer.” This effect gets picked up with different light sources, hopefully reminding the viewer of the magical nature of life itself.
Expanding horizons as an artist, I have ventured into photography and digital art concepts. I am influenced by phone photo applications that allow transformation of my pics into art. I call this art style, “Bryanism.”
I seek to express what lies beneath the surface of life in abstract paintings full of color washes and drips. I often reference the landscape—for me, it is the holy sanctuary of the earth.
Working from photos, I produce purely digital abstractions in software. “Nostos algos” is a recent work inspired by Homer’s The Odyssey. The monumental achievements of Abstract Expressionism remain my compass.
My work is abstract and introspective, using multiple layers of acrylic mediums in vibrant hues and muted colors; intermixing, and evolving, to reflect the experiences of renewal I have gone through.
Arabesque line work and vibrant coloration of meaningful or playful visual content remains my passion and my love, still, after these many years. Hope you enjoy some of my painting engagements.
