I am an acrylic painter of abstract art, and now currently focusing on flowers. My abstract floral portraits are bold with vibrant colors and expressive paint strokes. With flowers, I have the freedom to capture impressions of colors, light, and movement with brushwork filled with emotion. With thick paint, palette knives, and silky brushes, I am able to create a textured canvas that brings the viewer into this world of enveloping buds, blossoms, and twisting, turning growth. My work is inspired by the paintings of Wolf Kahn, Milton Avery, Claude Monet, Franz Klein, and Fran Stiles. My art is in collections throughout the US and internationally.
