Artists Statement

 

The canvas is both a window and a mirror for me. Through the window of the canvas I create a poetic and elegant vision of nature, the way it was, the way it should be, the way it will be again. Luminosity and veils of translucent color invite quiet contemplation. Each painting is also a mirror reflecting joy and celebration, a visual sonnet of beauty and grace, a journey for the soul, a landscape illuminating the longing of the heart.

 

I focus on soft edges, rich textures and evocative light that reach in to create peace of mind and heart. Through the harmonization of color, shape and tone paradise is not lost but remembered, hoped for, realized on the canvas and resurrected in our mind.
