why i paint
I have always been addicted to paint, the way it feels, the way it flows, the vibrant colors. Paint is cool! It's fun to experiment and mix up different concoctions to see how they interact with each other.
My path to fluid art began when one of my alaskan cruise excursions dropped me off on a glacier. I looked down and saw the neatest work of art in a puddle of glacier melt. The ice was so blue with brown sediment and crystal clear water. I thought "I'm going to paint that!" So began my journey.
Artists are asked to explain their process. I always struggle with that question. I guess I use my creativity to produce a reaction between paint and different materials then manipulate it with gravity, wind or fire to produce something beautiful. I hope you enjoy it!
