"Working with acrylics and glazes on Plexiglas allows me to indulge in a true visual feast."

about my work - and myself 

First, thank you so much for spending some time with my work! 

I have been painting on acrylic panels (commonly known as "Plexiglas") for more than a decade. My work is non-representational - it's about the colors, the shapes and lines, contrasts and subtleties, depths and movements within the paintings. By working with acrylic paints and glazes on Plexiglas, light appears to emanate from within the painting and the unique textures invite the viewers' visual caress. (One is always tempted to touch the surface of my work.)

And while we indulge in the beauty and drama of the visual, our very human instinct is to seek out even greater meaning within the image. It becomes what we feel and associate and think about what we see. My most successful pieces are those that invite the viewer to interact not only with the visual elements, but with the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual associations they experience through the work. 

Inspiration

I came to paint on acrylic panels while on a quest to paint with the purity of color one finds on a computer screen. My work is something of a contemporary update of the color-field painters of the mid 20th century, but it's also influenced by a pioneer of abstract art, Wassily Kandinsky, as well as the minimalist Donald Judd. The works of Hans Hoffman, Helen Frankenthaler, Jackson Pollack and Mark Rothko have inspired me tremendously.

Techniques

My paintings are created essentially by mixing acrylic paint with special glaze mediums and pouring the mixtures onto my acrylic panels. I manipulate the panels to mix the wet paints together and then allow the paint to dry. Once dry, the process begins again, as I connect with each layer of paint and build upon it. Chance and gravity play a role in the creation of all my paintings. I have experimented with building paintings with several acrylic panels, removing the dried paint and cutting/shaping it, etc. 

career highlights

Painting is my second career. I worked in corporate America for more than 15 years before starting a family. I chose to stay home with my young children, and as they grew I returned to school part time to study art and design. After seven years, I earned my BFA from Texas State University-San Marcos in 2008. My work has been shown in galleries in Texas, Atlanta and Virginia, with my first solo show at The Radius Gallery in San Antonio in 2009.
