I am inspired by nature, light, joy and color. My medium of choice is oil, just because I love the texture and the variety of the beautiful colors I can get with oil paint. I always pay close attention to the play of lights and darks, the vibration of warm and cool, as well as transparent and opaque colors.
My style is best described as expressive or maybe impressionistic, full of color and energy and I don’t shy away from making a large abstract. Favorite subject matters are figures, flowers, dogs, landscapes, basically anything with organic shapes. You won’t find many city scapes in my repertoire.
Experimenting, pushing myself out of my comfort zone, is what I find exciting. Every painting is a problem to solve, a challenge to deal with. In all my work you will find intuitive elements, and sometimes even completely painted from intuition.
My painting journey is an infinite joyful adventure.
My paintings can be found in many private collections.
I’ve participated in numerous juried and member shows, as well as solo shows in Maryland, Virginia and Colorado. And won many awards.
My latest solo show was in the Yellow Barn, Glen Echo, MD in November of 2019.
