“My love of texture led me to oil paint and I have never looked back. I love the contrast of juicy washes, thick brush strokes and palette knife, all of which are usually present in each piece. When I decide on a subject it is always because something compels me to paint it. I find a painting will lack conviction if I haven’t been there or felt something about the subject. I try very hard to transfer the emotion I feel to the painting, which hopefully is conveyed to the viewer. Painting is my life’s blood and I am so grateful for the deeper level of “seeing” that it has given me.”
