I got into painting in college near Chicago. When the opportunity came to go to the University of Hawaii at Manoa, I couldn’t turn it down! I graduated with a BA in Art. During my last year there, my 3D canvases began to take shape. (Pun intended!) There was a lot of sweat, tears, and a little blood that went into each piece as I continued a trial and error approach. (Less blood and tears as time went on.) I was, and still am, hooked-completely enthralled by this new topography that I created under the canvas surface. There is a strange compulsion to touch and physically explore this new landscape of the canvas that I find fascinating. I hope you enjoy this new world as much as I do!
