"As I have worked to develop my personal art path, I started with acrylics and brush on canvas but in the past year I have found such joy and freedom utilizing oils and palette knife on canvas.
This medium, with its “butter like” consistency, creating depth and texture, allows for amazing expression as oil paint is moved and manipulated by the knife.
I find I have great interest in the beauty of so many things I experience every day, it is fascinating to try and capture the charm or the story of the sometimes forgotten structures, machinery, buildings and terrain, the materials used, the purpose and people they served, in a time gone by. This current series of paintings I have produced, “Ohio Inspiration,” strives to capture these characteristics from the cities, towns and backroads of my home state that I love!
Thank you so much for taking the time to explore my world that I attempt to capture though my art!"
