I'm a self employed fine artist specializing in traditional abstract work. I have painted an occasional landscape and still life but it is Abstract painting that allows me to put the emotion into my work. I also enjoys donating pieces to various charities.I am self taught. The world around us and personal experiences have been my greatest teacher.
I am here to sell original work and connect with fellow artists. Pieces will say if they are for sold in the 'artists comments' My originals are not set to price. I want my work to be affordable for the consumer. If you are interested in an original piece of art please feel free to contact me via email.
Thank you for taking the time to view my gallery.

A good painting to me has always been like a friend. It keeps me company, comforts and inspires.

Admin of :icondeviated-path: I created the group for traditional Abstract and Surreal artists. The focus is to inspire, share and connect with fellow artists who enjoy the same genre. These are just a few pieces that are in the group.

Bittersweet and Thank You

Tue Jun 17, 2014, 1:18 PM
Hello Everyone :wave: Here's a bit of a update....
If you haven't noticed, I am back to a being a Senior Member. It definitely was not an easy decision but I feel I made the right one. 
It's only fair to everyone, including myself that I step back from being a volunteer. Sometimes things happen in life that need more of your attention. Trust me, it's all good. I'm not leaving dA. In fact you may even see me more often! It's also equally important to the community to allow someone else who can commit to the role of volunteering and assist with the overall community. I'm sure whoever takes my place will do a great job!

 I want to thank jane-beata, deshrubber, STelari, Astralseed and of course Moonbeam13 It was such a pleasure and and a true honor to working alongside you in the Traditional Gallery. I cannot say enough about how awesome you all are :love: 

And a special THANK YOU to all you wonderful artists and deviants who have always been supportive from the first day we connected on here, through my time volunteering and to the present. My list of thank yous is a bit lengthy but I'm sure you know who you are.


"The man who arrives at the doors of artistic creation with none of the madness of the muses would be convinced that technical ability alone was enough to make an artist. What that man creates by means of reason will pale before the art of inspired beings."
I'm not an abstractionist. I'm not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I'm interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.
~Mark Rothko
I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.
~Frida Kahlo
