It’s all about the feeling and mood I strive to covey. Its elusive quality can transform a subject or plant that conveys a sense of place and captures the magic. I like to focus on the details that I find so intriguing, I am faithful to the reality of my work and perfecting the realistic style. My art conveys a heightened artistic interpretation of the subject. My creative process begins with a unique composition, one that draws me into the subject, a close-up which can sometime be playful or serious.
My foundation comes from a collection of fine art college courses, professional artists (mentors), and workshops. I explored figure drawing and plein air with a variety of different mediums. My medium of choice is oil. I love the way the paint glides on the canvas and the vibrancy of the colors. Oil paints are forgiving and I am able to move and change the look I am striving to accomplish during the creative process.
