I am a contemporary expressionist – known for my vivid, abstract color animal paintings.
In the fall of 2013 however, I was commissioned to do two mural-size canvases with an equestrian theme in earthy tones. The commissions were a great success and more commissions were requested in that limited color scheme, which became the stimulus for the muted colors on my palette.
It was the next natural step – to see how far I could remove the color from my work and still bring life and energy to my paintings. The Black and White series resulted from my experimentation.
The muted acrylic drip paintings continue, and my latest pastel work has become more simplified and abstracted. Other new pieces are mixed – pastel and acrylic – on archival printmaking and watercolor papers. Please enjoy my newest work!
