Uncovering the Horizon
Painting the vibe I have for the day.
Throughout life everyone is molded by their experiences and environments. These touch our hearts in different ways. This is true of me as well. My home, work and travels have formed my perspective when painting and creating.
Growing up in the woods of South Jersey, I spent a lot of time outdoors with the dirt, trees, frogs and bugs.
At a young age, I started working on construction sites, always finding interesting cast off materials to use for projects. Then, as I got involved in artistic masonry, decorative concrete and landscaping, I started to use this background to begin creating pieces.
Creations using recycled metal, appliances, plywood and more started to take form. And, as always, these pieces were inspired by nature.
The themes that I so love include faces, eyes, sunsets, landscapes and flowers.
Some of those faces and nature scenes came from the new people and places I came to know. Visits to the Caribbean, especially Haitian communities, moved me to have great affection for the Haitian people, their culture, and even trying my hand at Haitian cooking!
The moments, people and places that have touched my life can be seen in the pieces you will find here at LocalB.Art.
