Hello & Welcome to my

Meet the Artist:
Much more Coming soon – Just Getting Started so check back!
It’s good to be back in the creative art mindset that God and my mom(who recently passed away at 93) would want me to be in.
Welcome to NCBArt.com! I’m so happy you stopped by. I am a painter who lives in Santa Barbara, Ca who works in acrylics on canvas and mixed media. I also do sculpture, drawings, and selective commissions. I can paint or draw in any style or do reproductions of anything but I have my own style. Please let me know if you have any questions. I’d be happy to discuss the work I have here in my studio, on my main website https://ncbart.com/ or on any special orders or commissions!
What I believe in…
Art is now my way of life. Keeping positive, Elysium-minded, drama-free people around me. I try to practice mindfulness and enlightenment and the teachings of David R Hawkins. Staying mentally active and physically healthy. Art, water, and massage are my sine qua non. Knowing there are many issues and work to be done in the world and I use my artwork to express myself in the most honest way possible (primal honesty takes courage), using my imagination of “What If”, life’s encounters, memories, dreams, and experiences.
I love color pigments. Using bold, happy vibrant colors is one way I can express my enthusiasm for life and my love for art. I use subject matter to express what is important to me or have experienced and consider my works to be a visual diary, a mantra of thoughts that I believe in, like the environment or for the people I love and believe in or are attracted to.
What you get….
One looks, and searches as an artist for their own voice, and hopefully, I’ll find it with hard work. You also get everything I can give to make a piece beautiful, speak to me, and in turn speak to you. Thank you for considering buying one or more of my pieces. I invite you to find your own personal connection to my art. I use color, size, mixed media, and negative space to infuse emotions memories and feelings into my self-built canvases. My works use bold colors, pours, drips, and mixed media, media that I’m drawn to, that I find, am given, purchase, or recycle.
Artists that inspire me…
This is the shortlist: Picasso, Max Beckmann, Hockney, Julie Mehrety, Joan Brown, David Park, Elmer Bischoff, Diebenkorn, Kitaj, Cezanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse Lautrec, Cassatt, Klimt, Mattise, De Kooning, Kitaj, Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, David Smith, Dale Chihuly, Rico Lebrun, Hans Hofmann, Peter Doig and many others.
Please let me know what I can do to help you own a piece of my work that speaks to you!
