Poppies On Canyon
My current series of work are botanicals, a passion of mine that has evolved from having traveled amongst and cultivated many families of plants including cacti, succulents and tropicals. What inspires me is their complexity and diversity as living sculpture. Their sensuality, exuberance and perseverance compels me to convey the joy and fascination that they bring to everday life. My paintings induce a sense of calm and reassurance as well as drama and individual brilliance, helping us to remain connected to nature while being surrounded by technology.
I am currently working on canvas using primarily water-based acrylics. I utilize a complex technique that I have developed with my experience in the unique application of airbrush. Pearlized pigments and metallic leafs contribute to a luminescence that can truly be observed by viewing the originals in their original scale.
