My work is mainly influenced by nature and all its glorious colors, the peace and tranquillity of the countryside and the animals and birds that inhabit our beautiful earth. I never quite know what I am going to paint, it usually depends on the type of mood I am in on the day, After a concentrated time of meditation, I then begin the painting, completely immersing myself in the work I am creating. On the days that I feel a need to escape for a while, my subject would usually be some exotic land with sunsets and palm-fringed beaches, Gauguin is one of my favorite artists. I also love the work of Henri Rousseau and Vladamir Gologov, Arthur Rackham, and John Anster Fitzgerald. I paint in both oils and acrylics and sometimes mixed media depending on what I am doing.
