Eric and I were born and raised in Akron, Ohio. We moved to Naples in 2001 to pursue our career as self-taught artists. In 2004 we began selling our paintings online. With the success of our online business we were eager to open our first gallery ART 41 in 2011. Since then we have been creating our collection of original abstract paintings, and specializing in custom artwork for our Naples collectors. Our Gallery and Studio is currently located in the Naples Art District on J and C Blvd.
As a husband and wife team, our close relationship allows us to collaborate on many of our pieces, drawing on the past and present to mold our work. An innate desire to express a feeling or recall a memory through shape and color is what motivates us to paint.
All of our work comes from a quiet, yet restless place inside. Although our signature pieces are very tranquil in nature, it’s quite the opposite as we’re creating them. With paint carelessly poured on the table, colors undetermined and brushes flung about.
Our work is described as contemporary abstract art with mixed media on canvas as the main medium used.
