It is essential that my paintings have energy and life; that they are an expression of the universal human response to beauty; and at the same time express my own personal passion for painting that goes beyond merely depicting the subject itself.
Classic, romantic subjects are often the creative spark for me. Flowers with vivid color and movement, lush gardens with architectural accents and landscapes that are warm and inviting are exciting subjects that inspire my work.
My focus is on visually infusing life into these images with vibrant color harmonies; thick, visible brushwork; strong contrast of light; and shadow and compositions with movement.
