CREATIVE BRIEF | "Self-Exression must pass into communication to reach its fulfillment." Pearl S. Buck
I started drawing and painting as a child, long before I ever had a concept of having to design what I make. I was just interested in the making. Painting is a discipline wholly separate from most design work, in no small part due to the fact that there are no screens or software or complex maths in a brush stroke, and the message isn't so important as the gesture. I am consistently captured by the work of the New York School artists of the 1950s action painting movement. Mark Rothko, Franz Kline, Robert Motherwell, Agnes Martin, Yayoi Kusama, Jackson Pollock, Barnett Newman and others are the Beatles of my art world. I love to combine figurative and abstract work in my pieces, as well as using words and poetry as part of my images. My goal is rarely to make a definitive statement of my own, but rather to invite the viewer into an emotional experience of their own devising.
