I grew up in San Antonio in a home where art was encouraged. I was exposed to all of the classical artists through art books that were a major part of an extensive home library. As a young child, I often attended art classes with my mother at both San Antonio College and Southwest Texas State. Rainy day activities frequently involved the McNay Art Museum, the Witte, and others. I like clean lines and curves so I am particularly drawn to the flowing forms and lines of Art Nouveau, Alphonse Mucha, Aubrey Beardsley, and Native art traditions such as those of the Northwest Coast, Anasazi pottery, the Greeks, and Egyptians. Growing up in the 60s and 70s I loved the imagery of Pop Art, Op Art psychedelic poster art, and artists such as Peter Max, Sol LeWitt, and Andy Warhol. I also admire the illustrative work of Maxfield Parrish, M.C. Escher, Patrick Woodroffe, and Roger Dean. “If you wish to understand the universe, think of energy, frequency, and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla Everything we ‘know’ is energy. I feel my images illustrate the unseen patterns underlying the forces and forms of the universe…. the layering, melding, flows, structures, and interactions of dimensions of time and energy…. of life and spirituality and the interrelatedness in that which we have agreed is ‘reality’. Bringing the unseen to the eye is my artistic endeavor.
