    Description

    My work is non-objective and influenced by my meditation and Qi Gong practices as well as my life experiences. It is spiritual and emotive in nature. My process is both intuitive and improvisational lending itself to joyous play. There are no restrictions of tools nor media. The only rule is that all my materials are archival. I paint in oil on mixed media surfaces, mainly on canvas or panels.

    Like our lives, an artist's our work is always evolving: 'a work in progress'. Neither our work nor our lives are static; ever growing, ever changing. The multitude of layers In "Echoes & Mirrors" reflect the winding pathways toward our inner self. The journey toward our authentic nature.

    beautiful

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.
