My work is termed impressionistic. It is representational to a given moment in time. Blessed with an undeniable connection to the past through my studies, I have adapted a strong sense of the aesthetics. To me it is all about preserving the beauty I see. I love experimenting with color, shapes and texture.... and most of all I love working spontaneously from life.
