In creating my art, I am projecting the atmospheric conditions of space and light onto the canvas. By using acrylic paint and the techniques of impasto and glazing, I build up the canvas with layers of paint and apply them in translucent and transparent layers of color.

The final result comes into view as dramatic and at the same time ethereal, much like the effects rendered by the Romantic English painter, J.W.M.Turner, whom I greatly admire. Another beacon of light and color for me is Claude Monet, a practitioner of expressing one’s perception before nature.

These techniques help to convey a unique visual experience time and again for the viewer.
