I am a painter and a poet. Or maybe a poet and a painter. I feel that both are equal in me. For my paintings, my medium is sky, and I use many different kinds of paint to depict it. I write poetry about many different things, but I often write poetry about my paintings, and then paint them into the painting.
I work in acrylic, oil, watercolor, refractured watercolor, (which is the same watercolor skies painted multiple times then cut and collaged together) and mixed media.
I also use a variety of surfaces: watercolor paper, canvas, panel and I paint murals, which means I will paint on wood, sheetrock, concrete block and stucco. I’ve also painted on furniture, fiberglass and metal. I love working on different shaped surfaces also.
And that is just what I have worked on so far. There are many ideas that may one day be experimented with or requested.
I sell my work at outdoor festivals in Southern California, Arizona, Nevada and some galleries, stores and alternative locations. I create work for homes, offices, medical facilities, hotels, etc. You can see more of my work and my schedule on my website: Skyscapes for the Soul. My work is not available directly through my website (primarily because work is frequently in and out of the studio to various shows) but you can always inquire by email – I do ship and sell online via Etsy or Paypal/Square invoicing.
I also do commissions – not necessarily just skies, I have painted birds, plants, landscapes and even the words of a song. I can work from your photographs or ideas and often the entire commission could be completed by email. You will find contact information on my website.
