As an artist, I develop paintings that have rich, vibrant, almost luminous color. Using a palette knife with oils allows me to express a sense of wonder and beauty in my paintings through the application of thick, fluid paint. I also enjoy the immediacy and sparkle that I can achieve with pastels. I find that with both of these mediums I can obtain sumptuous, glimmering color.
I paint landscapes and floral scenes in an abstract expressionistic style. Both my floral and my landscape paintings have a clearly developed central area, contrasted with pieces of color chosen to suggest common, natural elements.
