About the Artist
Instead of trying to reproduce exactly what I have before my eyes, I use color in an abstract way to express myself forcibly. I use colors that are exaggerated, more energetic, more expressive than those I actually"see"in my subject. I also greatly simplify the shapes and forms of the objects I am painting - bringing out only what is essential, integral to my subject. Additionally, I have begun to experiment with how pigments interact with each other, begun to use various medias together - sometimes in unconventional ways. More and more I have started paying attention to the physical qualities of the paint itself, its texture, color and shape.
Painting in Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Gouache, Pastels, Egg Tempera, and Mixed Media. Creating Found Art/Construction Sculptures and Mobiles using: Found Items, Odd Bits, Natural Ephemera and Recycled Objects.
