My art is often related to nature as I feel a strong kinship with
Mother Earth. Patterns of organic shapes, colors and spaces have always
intrigued me, and I enjoy abstracting these elements to create images
that excite me.
|While designing my work on canvas or board, I
work out a composition that looks right to me, paying attention
to how the negative spaces fit together with the objects; the
values of light and dark, the hues of color and how they all
interact with one another. Combining these actions reminds me
of putting a three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle together. I prefer
to use an impasto style of painting to create textures in my
work. This style expresses the variations in surfaces of natural
elements, which fascinate me.
In addition to the variations in the surfaces in my work, I also
strive to create images that convey emotions and moods. My goal
is to convey these feelings by combining texture and color in a
way which I hope become interesting to the spectator.
