I specialize in abstracts, as well as contemporary semi-abstract, seascapes, landscapes and flowers. The two themes are similar in mood, style and perspective, and all endeavor to generate a sense of intimacy while leaving the subject open to interpretation.
I am inspired by the French Lyrical Abstract style, which can be seen as a balanced elegant style of painting that is loaded with content from the natural world, often marked by sumptuous color. The intention is to create finished work that is abstracted and more expressional than representational.
This is accomplished by using rich textures, multiple layers, and working impasto with painting knife.
My work can be found in private collections in USA, Canada, United Kingdom, France, and South Africa.
