Abstract Paintings & Abstracts Fused with Realism
Art reflects life, hence I love to juxtapose contrasts in my abstract paintings – smooth versus texture, organic versus geometric, cool versus warm colors, etc. – to show that differences can co-exist; in fact, they can inspire each other.
Oils are my preferred medium (I also work in pastels and worked in watercolor for 15 years). I work with a palette knife and a brush, going back and forth during the entire painting process. Oil paints facilitate my exploration of color. Much like a musician, I choose a particular color chord for each painting to bring harmony and unity throughout; this adds another interesting dimension as I play with contrasts. You will note that my abstracts have a sense of depth to them, which is not typical for most abstract artwork.
My passion is to create intimate paintings transporting you to another time and place …to convey visual beauty and color harmony with intrigue for your home and office. With my use of color, design, multiple layers and texture, I want to stir your senses and invite you to allow your head and heart to go beyond the boundaries of the frame.
