My painting style is constantly evolving. Whether representation, expressionistic or interpretative, I use the style or technique suitable for capturing that special moment. The acrylic paint that I use facilitates spontaneity as well as careful and considered work, allowing for both watercolor effects and textural possibilities. Starting with the classical underpainting and building with many transparent layers; a vibrant palette, strong compositions, subtle shades and contrast combine to create the dynamic and contemporary feel in my work. Whether it be an atmospheric landscape using soft edges and little detail or a hard edged, detailed still life, I strive to elicit an emotional response; perhaps a happy memory, a feeling of serenity, harmony or even a bit of whimsy.
