The use of media and the exploration of media and techniques is a constant focus of my work. Combining elements of the Impressionists, Georgia O'Keefe, and Van Gogh, it is best termed contemporary realism featuring closeup images to invite the viewer to "enter" and participate in the scene. Working in acrylics, oils & watercolor frees me to be able to create unique effects that are impossible with one medium alone.
The content of my art seeks to capture the energy, essence and spirit of Nature and to portray our relationship to Nature and Spirit. This goes along with the notion that we are all part of a cohesive Whole, and each part of that Whole, makes a difference and contributes a unique and different perspective. A great reverence for Life and for each living thing, is the driving force behind my paintings. I believe great art is about vision, and vision is about inner Truth. I paint my inner vision, the truth of each subject as I see it, always striving to catch the essence of the subject. Here, I will never compromise, I will always listen to my own inner Voice.
