ARTIST STATEMENT Painting in acrylics allows me to rapidly render color and shapes into form. The texture of the paint adds an exciting physical experience and sculptural dimension to the process and piece. I am interested in capturing the mood or feeling of the subject as I experienced it. I graduated from Middlebury College, Middlebury, VT in 1992 with a BA in Art and Economics. In 1999, I completed a Certificate Degree in Graphic Design at Massachusetts College of Art while working at Little Brown & Co. in Professional Journals. I enjoy the creative problem solving process of design, but love to step away from the computer and get messy with traditional art supplies.
