My subject matter is nature, and peace whether it is a traditional landscape or a fish and flower painting. I use traditional materials, oils, ink, and brush on canvas, to capture movement and life — making the brush dance and the acrylic sing. Everything is captured in the spontaneous dance and movement of the brush as it meets the canvas or the paper. There is no going back and correcting when painting with acrylics. Also, it's an endless process doing it with oils on canvas..something so classical and many glazings and layers! I like to paint flowers as a symbol of the blossoming of human nature. In the busy and stressful days of today’s society, the heart is the place where we can look for peace and fulfillment. I'm expressing this in my floral oil paintings. Every petal and every stroke is part of an inner process of seeking oneness and harmony.
