How did showing in the exhibition impact your career as an artist?
“I attended an interesting gallery talk by the juror.”
I am a prolific painter, working primarily in acrylic. I consider myself an Abstract Expressionist. My work is filled with bold, handsome colors and geometric shapes in space. The negative space is as important to me as the positive space. I prefer to let my imagination direct my hand as playful and fun images emerge. Many happy life experiences have endowed me with an endless supply of ideas which are reflected in my paintings.
