Painting is Romantic...
My obsession with the sky; in all its glory, turbulent yet graceful, that moment when the sun is hiding behind a cloud, or the magical hour when daytime has come to an end...is not about simply a sunset. Yet, the simplicity of what is above our heads is so profound to me, that words could never explain my feelings: A complicated mesh of emotion and spirituality: what is God? Who is She? Why am I here?
It makes me want to stop and just breathe.
All of us get so wrapped up in things that in the big picture, become so
unimportant... when sometimes, all we need to do is just look up and
experience that beautiful opera in the sky.
My passion for painting people is very similar. Discovering every unique soul
I am fortunate to paint and be able to describe their psychological and visual
impressions with those wondrous globs of color that lay before me is a
challenge and adventure I will always cherish.
My process is very special and has taken years to hone. I use only the finest pigments, brushes and surfaces available. I am an advocate for the timeless method of the classical masters where layer upon layer is painstakingly applied. My paintings are not born in a single night and when you see them in person, you will experience the luminous quality that is only achieved by this method.
