"wild and rebellious"
As an artist, I believe that Art is at its truest form while being created. It's something that comes from within, subconsciously & intuitively. I'm an artist who has no prejudice towards any medium, style, or subject matter. I enjoy getting my hands into every medium, exploring endless possibilities of my creative vision. You can see this in most of my work, working with abstract forms, experimenting with color, textures, 2 & 3 dimensional, and making art in response to popular culture. My current series "wild and rebellious" is a series of the desert wild child, tumbleweeds. I used to live in Albuquerque, New Mexico and tumbleweeds would grow endlessly in my yard. I would have to pull and burn them on a regular basis as a chore when I was a kid. So they've stuck with me, and were an easy subject to relate to in art. I enjoy making tumbleweed art because they constantly grow, whether in the desert, on the side of the freeway, dry up, plant seeds, travel and prevail. Its a constant reminder to do the same, move forward and be wanderlust in life.
