I like to paint what comes to mind, things I dream up.. and these often include images of the human figure, faces, landscapes and to a lesser extent, abstracts. My paintings are contemporary, stylised, subtle, free and often colourful and I would dwell on an idea or theme for a painting, sometimes creating a few with the same thread before moving on. Then I often revisit the theme as an afterthought.
Techniques I use include wet in wet as well as some wet on dry methods - these may or may not be present in different variations and combinations, however the mood may lead me. I have also discovered the wonderful ways of the old masters in layering and find that this method demands much time of course, but the end result is very pleasing to the eye and heart.
For me art is to enjoy, to work with integrity and commitment. Enjoy!
"The eyes are not to be trusted, paintings are not just about light on the retina.
Rather, art is the continuation of impulses from God. There must be movement; growth;productivity" (Unknown author)
