I am fascinated with creating light and color with paint. I feel amazed when observing the colors of nature and want to bring these feelings into my canvases. I want my paintings to be a visual meditation on light and color, drawing the viewer into a deeper relationship with nature.
I love to work with the luscious colors of oil paint. Using brushes, oil paint, oil sticks, palette knives and rags. I build up layers of paint on my canvas, creating a rich textured surface of broken colors. With this layering process I'm able to achieve many subtle color combinations and contrasts, bringing a luminosity and glow to my paintings.
