I have always wanted to paint on a large canvas. I purchased four 3 foot by 4 foot canvases to see what I could create.
Colour, line, textures and shapes are all my passion. In each of these pieces I explore and play with all these elements in various ways.
Keys to the Rhythm, the first piece is playful, bold and colourful and has a graffiti vibe to it.
Sea Lights came about, after spending a month on the central California coast. I find the ocean exciting but also at the same time calming and relaxing.
In Rainbow Rising, I revel in the pure delight of texture and colour to create a playful, more youthful painting. It makes me think of summer carnivals and care free days enjoying the delights of sunny days.
Islands in the Stream, although not as colourful as the other three, takes the viewer on a leisurely trip down a texture filled waterway , that has many little surprises along the way.

All these paintings are a celebration of the joy in everyday moments.
Many times, we do not take the time to appreciate those little moments, that bring a smile to our face or give a lift to our step. We are in a hurry to get to our destination. We forget about the journey.
Take a few moments to take a journey and enjoy the colours, textures and lines that express my appreciation of these special pieces of life.

When I take a photo, I am attracted to some aspect of it that tells a story and conveys a mood. I use digital painting to accentuate that story or mood. As a traditional artist my passions are bold colour, texture and lines. These concepts are seen in my digital art as well. I am still painting but with pixels instead of a physical brush

In this series, I decided that I wanted to experiment with pouring medium to see how I could use it to express my love of line, bold colour, shape and texture within an abstract framework.
