Sue Gilbert Abare

"I have always been fascinated with color and shape, and I like to dig into memories for my inspiration. I find myself integrating the natural and the abstract to come up with my own unique view of the world."

    David is a Californian by birth and temperament. He grew up hiking through the soaring mountains of the Sierra Nevadas and hanging out at the beaches near Santa Cruz. Vibrant colors area a part of his life's tapestry. His artistic talents first manifested in the performing arts. He can juggle and ride a unicycle and sang, danced and traveled the world with Up With People. In recent years, he invested his creative energy in painting. His paintings are bold and expressive, incorporating vibrant color and painterly brushwork. The combination of color and texture are a celebration of life and art.
