Last month I moved my studio from New York City to the Hamptons.
I am inspired by the ocean and light that surrounds me.
I like living on Long Island "Off Season" most of all!
My mixed media work expresses light and love.
I apply seashells, sand, glass and marbles sealed in envirotex resin.
When the suns rays touch my art, my work illuminates.
The light of God and all positive energy is expressed.
My painting above titled "Ocean of Man's Heart"2013
represents a complex heart, like the weathered ocean with the
light of hope surrounding it.
The villages of East Hampton, Southampton, Sag Harbor etc..
have a reputation as an artist colony.
Jackson Pollock lived here in
the 1940's and 1950's with Lee Krasner.
The Pollock-Krasner House and Studio is nostalgic!
I dream of owning a farmhouse one day like this,
with a barn in the backyard that I will turn into my studio. (smiling)
This past month I was commissioned to paint a tree for a new collector.
Before I shipped the painting out West, I photographed "Seven in Seattle" on Coopers Beach in Southampton. There are seven hearts in the tree representing each member in their family. The symbol of the heart is my trademark and surfaces in most of my painting as well as my suspended paintbrush.
