ARTIST - SAVANT ARTIST COLLECTIVE
Glens Falls, New York
I am an Americana Visual Artist combining both surrealism and realism in a whimsical yet precise manner. My artistic expression followed an adult Severe Traumatic Brain Injury caused by a fall at my previous residence in Philadelphia PA. I was in the need of great care, safety and support. With the support of my mother, brothers and sisters I was ensured I would recover at my birthplace, Glens Falls, NY.
The emotional whirlwinds of acceptance and loss unknowingly exploded into a powerful flow of creative channeling, driven purpose and unknown healing. The downtown Glens Falls cafe’s and coffee shops’ became both my studio and my home from early morning until late night for several years. I began to trust a source of creative energy which I had unconsciously yet powerfully connected with.
The medium I currently explore is charcoal, graphite, pastel and acrylic. My body of work philosophically falls in the realm of rumination, contemplation and even spiritualism.
Much of my work is donated to community events, the arts, theatre, music venues and non-profit agencies.
