“I found I could say things with colors that I couldn’t say in any other way… things I had no words for.”

– Georgia O’Keeffe

I like color, vivid color. It’s the constant in my paintings. My subjects and style can vary but the vivid color is always apparent. Color; like music, can alter your mood and even manipulate your thoughts. Many people like the color blue. It can possibly make you feel calm and you might think of the ocean or a memory of being at the beach and feeling calm. As I grew up in Burlington, N.C. and live in Fort Lauderdale, FL and having traveled in the U.S., South America, Europe as well as Asia I have seen how color plays an integral role in all cultures. For example, red in Asia would mean prosperity, in India it would mean purity and some countries in Africa it would mean death. It’s entertaining to me when I hear expressions like ” I’m feeling blue” or “It’s a golden opportunity” or “green with envy”. If you were to present yourself as a color, what would that color be? Why? What were you thinking or remembering? Probably many colors. This is an exploration to me. No matter if it’s nature or man-made it has true colors that are always changing. Is it the light or is it a memory or feeling. I hope you enjoy my paintings as I continue to explore the language of color.
