My botanical oil paintings meld depths of dimensionality with areas of saturated colors.
Elliptical and organic forms are sensuously rendered, intriguingly suggested.
Sensitive draftsmanship combine with energetic application of multi-tonal layers of oil paint, graphite, wax, etc. in transparent liquidity and textured impasto, at times with expanses of gold leaf.
There is vivacity and strength conjured with light and movement, energy with an orchestration of paint in motion.
I strive to create a kind of recognition within the viewer, a sense of peace, or a meditative energy wherein we find strength, nourishment and invigoration.
