aboutimage   An activity I simply do for fun has served as a method to express, create, and learn. I enjoy improving the skills that help interpret and communicate the patterns I see in my mind. With these tools that grow and develop alongside of me, I create a channel to the infinite potential of creativity. Over the years of drawing and painting, I have developed a technique of beginning with the simplest of lines and using them as the seed of the painting. I build off patterns I find in the basic shapes and colors on the canvas and allow the painting to create itself while guiding it in a direction I find interesting. Contrast of opposites appeal to me and implementing all sides of the spectrum is a goal I find myself striving towards in each painting I create. teppla@gmail
