Hi, Let me introduce myself,
I paint in oils reveling in their flexibility and depth. While my paintings often use representations of nature, they really have nothing to do with nature, or any specific place, and everything to do with emotions. I paint what I am feeling onto the canvas, using primarily water & skies to convey those emotions, having no preconceived idea of what the end result will be. Each piece is a journey of discovery for me, and I hope for you the viewer as well.
I also love to play with alcohol inks which you will find samples of on my Abstracts page.
Thank you & Enjoy!
