What inspires me to create is my heart and my soul. Painting is something I have a need to do and when the feeling strikes me, I must put paint to canvas.
For me, it's a meditation, a blend of the colors I dreamt of the night before. Sometimes my dreams are so vivid I wake up at 3am to lay the colors down while they are still bright in my memory.
I play music while I paint, and the process becomes a dance of the explosion of color onto the empty canvas.
I have a branding guru, Chris Power-Gomez and after working together for several months and seeing who I am as a person and artist, he created my brand Vivace'.
Vivace' represents the essence of me.
I am filled with positive energy and a vibrancy that is a way of life, it is who I am. I am Vivace'.
I currently am working on a large fluid acrylic piece called Heaven. I also have two commissions in progress and shipping out a painting to one of my patrons who regularly purchases my art.
I am a licensed artist and work with IMAGIO Glass here in the US and they are the twin of CreoGlass. We both create art in people's homes. I am also a licensed artist with EACGS.
I like to spend my time with my daughter and son-in-law who lives 20 minutes from me. I ride a Trikke T12 Roadster 3,000 miles a year in a global challenge competing with riders across the globe to see who can ride the most miles. So far, I hold the record for the last 5 years at 3,000+ miles. As i get older my knees are giving me trouble so I will be switching to the Electric Unicycle next for my thrills.
I also love to go indoor skydiving and my goal is to be the #1 indoor skydiving champ in my age group.
My art style is abstract fluid acrylic with floating sparkles and shimmers.
I am currently in the Sarasota, Florida area of the US.
