Abstract art invites the mind to see something different each time you experience it, bringing never-ending interest in a singular piece. My colorful paintings are mostly lyrical or geometric abstraction. I choose bright colors which I find uplift the mood for myself and for those who see my artwork. Feeling liberated by the free-flowing delivery of lines, I allow the composition to pour out from me intuitively. The process of its creation allows me to express myself in a nonconforming manner, much differently than in the other facets of my life. I began painting daily as a distraction from my grief from losing my brother. I instead found a deeper connection with him through creating my art while listening to classic rock, the music for which we shared a passion.
