My latest acrylic work is very similar to my early paintings. I focused on my favorite colour (green) and aqua blue to create an ocean landscape. The best part of… Read more Green, blue and gold leaf abstract acrylic on canvas →

My latest work is a gold trident with a textured surface. The piece is 11 x 14 inches and is entitled: Neptune’s Trident. I started off with a free hand sketch of a 3 pronged shape. Using a ruler to outline the sections, my aim was to ensure a shape that was as “un-lopsided” as possible. Without a symbol to trace, or a rough draft on graph paper it was tricky to conceptualize this shape. Once the shape was sketched on the canvas, I furthered my experimentation with texture by… Read more Gold Trident with Black Background →
My latest 10 x 10 inch// 25 x 25 cm acrylic on canvas continues my study of singular-focused images against black negative space.

The concept of this piece began with a desire to have a richly layered blue foundation for another rich, yet contrasting ,… Read more January Abstracts →

My latest painting is a splendid mix of bright yellow, iridescent blue, and white. There is a surge of excitement in this piece, and some mystery as well. As of yet, this painting is unnamed, which may as well be since I feel like it will have a short time with me as its owner. The eclectic blends and pops of colour on this unnamed work make it ideal for digitizing– a run through on Photoshop would produce some interesting lines that are invisible to the naked eye. I feel… Read more Electric Yellow Acrylic Abstract on Canvas →
