I focus on realistic renderings of beaches, sands, and dune landscapes in my oil paintings. This realism goes beyond what a camera can catch. My work is infused with light, rhythm, and experience that emerges from my own perceptions.
My knowledge of the Old Masters painting techniques enables me to create and capture an atmosphere through delicate lighting on my subject. By building up many layers in oil to produce the desired effect of depth, I strive to create a highly detailed painting that can also be appreciated from a distance.
My work seeks to reflect my intimate emotions of being present in these landscapes. In the historical pulse of our time, when many feel environment loss or a disconnection from the natural world, my work is an invitation to open our perceptual abilities and reconnect with nature’s astounding qualities.
