If you want to ride the wave you have to be in the ocean
My artworks are created with acrylic paints and the majority are on gallery wrapped canvas making the visual appearance of these pieces more interesting as the image wraps around the side of the canvas. For smaller pieces I lean towards using wood panels.
Although I have many difference styes, all of which I enjoy, most of my works are expressions of nature, beaches and foliage. These expressions are derived from photographs I have taken and memories of the places I have been, things I have seen. Starting with a blank canvas I take these photos along with their memories and create my art.
My goal for the end result is a work of art that engages the observer, drawing them into the scene and leaving them with a sense of peacefulness.
