Creating a large, contemporary painting on an over-sized canvas has its delights and challenges. It is, at times, overwhelming but also unbelievably exhilarating. Endless hours go into building up many layers of paint until a particular effect is achieved. Sometimes paintings take many months to create and during that process they develop a character of their own.
There is also an exciting energy to my work and a direct and absorbing relationship with each piece as it unfolds. When creating custom paintings, I immerse myself in the environment where it will be seen, to feel the flow and energy of the room so those can be expressed through the paint and complement that energy. My goal is to capture the beauty of nature and the heartbeat of life itself, always pushing myself to take greater creative risks.
I love to work with acrylic and inks, and adore the jewel-like colours that come from natural pigments, enabling an incredible relationship between nature and the painting. My style is constantly changing as I keep discovering new paints and techniques and I want to explore the limitless possibilities of colour on canvas.
Minimum lead time on a commission is six months and for a heavily layered work it could take longer. If you are interested in a commission on this scale, or have any questions, please schedule an appointment to talk
