I've been blessed by having the opportunity to travel, for work and pleasure, to 50+ different countries and experience the global diversity in cultures, art and cuisine. Philosophically, I feel compelled to share these experiences, through my work. I've created a series of companies around inspiration including Inspired Art Wine (IAW), an art studio, wine bar and gallery based out of Costa Mesa, CA.
Since 2016, IAW counts 20,000+ customers, 250+ corporate clients and I look forward to impacting more! From a three-year old toddler to a ninety-seven year old grandma, my mission has always been to educate, entertain and inspire anyone who is wanting and willing to learn regardless of their age, background or artistic level. Over the years, I’ve taught close to 10,000 students at my studio across various mediums: acrylic, watercolor and mixed media.
The students I've taught have inspired me to offer my art to a wider audience beyond my location. My own personal work primarily focuses on abstract acrylic paintings. I am a minimalist when it comes to the tools of the trade with pieces created using business cards, corks and dental floss. My goal in every piece is make it timeless, gender, racial and cultural agnostic so that each visual creation evokes various emotions to any viewer.
I am most happy and fulfilled when I’m creating. I find the best ideas and concepts come to me when my mind flows organically without mental barriers. Depending on the mood, energy and atmosphere during the creative process, each piece reflects the emotions I’m feeling at the moment in time. Cameras capture moments in photo, my acrylic pour is a visual representation of that moment captured on a canvas. I pour my heart out in every piece so each painting will never have a duplicate.
My style is about “going with the flow,” but I’m obsessed with creating visual balance. These free flowing, acrylic pour works bring the viewer into different relaxing dimensions. Some enjoy the comfortable warm feeling of water inspired works whereas others like the borderless feeling of space. Either way, all enjoy seeing their own voyage through my visions. You’ll see certain elements in each piece is serene yet chaotic, loose yet intense. Depending on who, what and where you’re viewing the painting, it evokes different emotions and interpretation.
You can find my work at my Costa Mesa studio, City Hall, universities, public/private corporations, small businesses and homes, domestically and internationally.
