I have developed my approach to landscape painting over the past twenty years using multiple layers of oil paint, thickener sand glazes. I feel my love of colour and passion for creating work that is as audacious as the elements themselves produces a personal style that I hope echoes the vibrancy of nature.
My work is mostly based on painting and sculpture. I tend toward larger abstract shapes always sharp and angled,never rounded.My sculpture is basically a tridimensional version of my painting which poses interesting challenges.
