The beauty and complexity of the sea inspires me. The complexity of the values, color, depth and intensity of the ocean waves and the temperature of the sea intrigue me. I like to paint Images of marine landscapes and their interactions with people. I would like to move toward the area of abstract marine landscapes.
In my process, I search for patterns and images that I find challenging that have a marine or ocean theme. I take these images and create oil paintings using the Old Masters techniques. Lately, I have been testing new surfaces other than canvas. I had to learn new techniques to work with Plexiglass. I had to switch from the oil medium to acrylics, acrylic gel mediums and texture acrylics to work on Plexiglass. I have been challenged to learn to create art in new surfaces and mediums and to attempt to apply Oil painting techniques to the acrylic medium.
I am an artist because it is something yearning to be shared with from my soul. Art brings the fragmentation of thoughts and feeling together. It is about when a complete stranger connect with something I have created. That feeling never gets old.
