The Abstract Circle Stories:

I am an artist that uses industrial and recyclable materials to create art work that is considered mixed media. Paints, papers, and metal become expressive parts of the overall project. All of my work is of the abstract genre and becomes fluid as it is conceived. The work focuses on canvas being the base, but I branch out to sculpture pieces as well.

I have multiple sclerosis (MS) which can create a challenge physically creating the work. The process of thinking out a project to physically creating allows an outlet for physical, mental, and cognitive therapy in living with MS.

The exhibition contains the works that represent the circle and how it is a beginning, ending, and completion of all things in life. Love, heartache, memories, and faith all come full circle to make us who we are. The soul is a circle that either grows outward or inward based on life experiences.  The artworks invite the viewer into the world of the wife of a disabled veteran raising six children while living with MS, maintaining their faith and life circle throughout the journey.

Depth and texture in the works pull the observer into the painting creating a wave of emotions as they explore the depth and textures that stir memories and connections in their own life circle experiences. We cannot be circumspect in this rawness of feelings, but must embrace the pieces and let the tears flow or the laughter burst from our bliss.

The vision of my work is to create depth and texture that causes the audience to dive in and immerse themselves into the piece to fully connect with the emotions and messages within each artwork. Paper, paint, metal, glass, and other media are transformed into circles that lead to a completed story. Secret messages to my husband also create interesting adventures for the viewer as they try to understand a complicated and faithful love story. The entire exhibition is tied together by circles, but moods and feelings change with each piece due to colors, sizes of canvas, and materials involved in the artistic process.
