When I am looking for what I want to paint I look for a picture that moves me. In most cases, a photo that I can feel love or a heart connection. I translate that feeling into my paintings.
Having horses in my life and sharing their energy to heal humans who have experienced trauma, my paintings project the silent communication that all animals share.
Sometimes people send me photos and often I request photos from those who have horses and mules in their lives. Other times, I see a photo that moves me, and I make a request.
I paint what I see however, I use bright vibrant color to interpret feeling and to make people see the world in a different light. I usually think about the colors I want to use after I see something that speaks to me. I get my color ideas from bowling balls, leaves turning color during the fall, the combination of clothes someone is wearing, etc.
One time, I asked a woman if I could take photos of her purple velvet shirt. The way it wrinkled and shimmered was amazing! I used those photos for a painting I call, “Rainbow Warrior.”
What I love about my paintings is the ink on the synthetic paper is much like life. That is, you have a plan and then you have to go with the flow. As long as you keep your plan in mind the thing you want to convey or do comes out better than you could have imagined. Ink on Yupo paper is like life, it goes into directions you cannot always control. My motto is “Go with the Flow.”
Since I changed my medium in 2018, the feedback I get inspires me to keep going. My Paintings are one of a kind, and unique in every way. People say that my paintings make them smile and bring them joy! I say, “BINGO,” because my intent is to have people feel the emotion.
What inspires me is when two living beings connect with
their souls. Something I learned to notice when I connected horses and humans
in the personal and professional growth programs I use to offer.
I like to combine colors that work together in a way that
creates contrast and compatibility. Like life when I use ink on a synthetic
paper the outcome becomes better than I could have imagined. The lesson for me
is to go with the flow.
