Why do I paint? Because I must!
My art is inspired by the colors, shapes and even the sounds found in nature, earth history, science, music, and reflections and refractions of light in some of the most unlikely of places. Specific examples are the horizon, rock formations, the ocean and sky, leopard spots, the shapes and colors of trees and jungle vegetation, images of galaxies and nebula, symphonic music and jazz. Colors, shapes, transitions, and rhythmic flows all come into play as pathways for expressing the urges that inspire me.
I create new pieces of art compulsively whenever time is available. Art is my mistress. I feel I’m truly working the colors, using my surface as a palate, blending and layering colors upon one another. Often it results in the impasto application of paint, and I hope it demonstrates the obvious pleasure I feel creating my pieces. I imbue objects with my own interpretation using dynamic, vivid, vibrant colors with flowing, graceful lines using both acrylic and oil paints as well as ink.
I keep evolving frequently exploring new techniques. So stylistically I have a wide range of genres from realism to impressionism, simple design pieces, cubism, collages to pure abstract. My application of paint is described as “impressionistic” and use of colors as highly contrasted and startling. I want my art to be color saturated, intense and surprising, and I seek designs that are balanced, harmonious, graceful, and free flowing with bold strokes and sinuous curves.
