Oils and acrylics on wooden panel
My work expresses emotions that I experience through observation of the natural world in all its nuances.
I focus on capturing and interpreting the essence of reality through the details.
Like a doctor searching for a diagnosis, my intricate artworks tell the history of my subjects. In this way, I communicate my perceived reality to the viewers for them to enjoy their own personal experience.
I paint with acrylic in varying consistencies using an impasto technique on wood panel. This allows me to express multiple focal points all living in harmony. I often use gold leaf, and vibrant colors to infuse my paintings with light, warmth and movement.
My latest body of work focuses on botanical scenes and wild animal representations.
