Some see watercolors as an elementary painter’s medium, an entry-level material for those too inexperienced to move onto the tougher paints like oil and acrylic. This is an unfair judgment – watercolors are actually fun and versatile paints with underestimated amounts of creative potential.
My paintings is the creation of opposites in a variety of rhythms and textures.
I combine different materials in order to overcome the challenge of achieving harmony and unity in my work. Some of my paintings are highly textured and have imbedded objects.
I explore this fine line of ambiguity between pure abstraction and implied realism through the process of layering color and organic texture. My objective is to evoke a sensation or memory in the viewer, of a place remembered or imagined, without literal reference to landscape.
