I wanted to show that there is a desire and ultimate necessity in being heard. The existence of an echo confirms that you have been heard, even if you had the only ears around.
Happy Black History month! My latest acrylic on canvas abstract work has two parts. I used the same palate for both pieces: blues of varying shades, gold, and green lurking… Read more Blue and Gold Abstract Acrylic →
My latest work in illustration has been the creation of simple geometric patterns against solic backgrounds of colour. This untitled illustration was a quick and happy one. Using an ink pen, I enlarged the brush size to get a thick circumference. I selected the symmetry option and using the line tool I began to draw line segments that connected at (what I hope are) 90 degree angles. I finished the quick draw by adding smiles for the little man sitting at the top. (hee hee). Some of the patterns have… Read more Illustrating simple geometric patterns →
My latest 10 x 10 inch// 25 x 25 cm acrylic on canvas continues my study of singular-focused images against black negative space. This piece features a heavily textured triangle shape that is entirely golden. Gold light I took photos of in the light, and so the shine of the black acrylic paint allows the viewer to also see raised texture floating in the blackness. Here (below) is a shot with the brightness turned down, and the contrast brought up to maximum. The painting has a much sexier look with… Read more Gold acrylic triangle with black →
My latest piece is warm, golden, azure blue-esque, iridescent and metallic. (The hour that I write this is a very late one, so bear with me.) This piece is small, yet the impact is big.

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 work is entitled “Two Moon Lagoon“. I used an acrylic pour method as the background; mixing white and silver as the colour for waves splashing on the coast. If you look closely, you can see a high tide wave emerging from the lower left side. As the acrylic pour developed: a coral-like branch protrudes out into the heart of the painting. The branches have a fractal quality to them, which pull the eyes deeper in. Over the vista, and through the green limbs of an alien-looking cactus… Read more Green, blue and silver acrylic abstract →

Latest Scratch Work: Herald Angel 2018- Acrylic on wood panel by Stephanie Konu This abstract 10 x 10 inch wood panel is a wild ride of eclectic technique, unusual colour, contrast, and a psychedelic trip into the imagination. I named it Herald Angel because the golden field that sits in the north-west corner represents an angel’s visit. Darkness swirls below. Iridescent green floats away into the atmosphere. Its existence is alien and benevolent. I love how the heavy iridescent green floats over the complex blue background. The swirling blue… Read more Abstract Acrylic on Wood in gold, blue, and iridescent green →
