I am A Singer/Songwriter and Artist who sees images, and uses them to communicate messages through paintings, transported through a song!!! As a songwriter, every second of my life, every thought I have is a potential song. As an oil painter, everything I see in the physical world, or in my head, is something to be put on a canvass……….and for me the two are intertwined as a message I am called to reveal.My choice medium is oil. I love the ability to manipulate it, creating layers of texture, and then sculpting it like clay. I also prefer to use stimulating and energizing colors. My desire is to awaken my viewers physically and emotionally, the way a message awakens me.For many of my works, I use animals to represent people. In conveying a message, I have found that humans have such a great sense of wonder with creatures, but with looking at humans there is usually a desire to define what is seen instantly and put it in a box. I’m not into boxes, so I have found it fun to eliminate this barrier. Also, Native American believed that animals and creatures served as messengers called totems. So, with each animal depicted in my painting, it also serves as a spiritual message.
