Growing up, I never quite understood the purpose of Abstract art.  It didn’t make sense to me.  I truthfully was all about realism and making sure I captured everything I saw perfectly.  It was in my mid-thirties when I realized why realism captivated me so.  It all boiled down to control. 

 

Painting fine art with precision forced me to stay within the lines. I had clear boundaries set out for me and for my viewers.  For me, it was a safe exploration into the art world.  Safety was something I relished and detested at the same time; a constant battle within me, which I still struggle with today. 

 

It was during one of my university classes that I discovered what Abstract painting was all about.  I’m sure it’s different for everyone.  I realized very quickly that creating abstract paintings allowed me to not focus on what I see, but how I felt and the energy that comes with that.  For a short period of time, I get to let go of my need for control, take risks, and lose myself in the acrylic painting that I’m creating.  I surrender to my brushes, paints, and canvas and let the journey begin.  There is truly nothing else that gives me greater self-awareness then when I’m creating abstract art. 

 

I hope that my acrylic abstract art takes you on a journey too.

“I never thought I would grow up to be a fine artist let alone an abstract artist.  Creating acrylic abstract paintings didn’t start until my late 30’s. I just knew that I was destined to follow my own path and if the path wasn’t always there, I made my own.  Fine art was my guiding light”.  Follow my journey.
