Welcome to my website

I have been keenly interested in painting for as long as I can remember. I have always had an urge to express myself.

I gained a lot of experience in creative work while traveling and meeting different people from different backgrounds. This experience has helped me with my artwork.

I am totally fascinated by the beauty of nature as God’s ultimate creation. As Emily Dickinson wrote, “Nature is What We See”

Nature is What We See,

The Hill, the afternoon–

Squirrel, Eclipse, The Bumble-bee,

Nay – Nature is Heaven,

 

Nature is what we hear

The bobolink, the sea–

Thunder, the Cricket–

Nay, – Nature is Harmony.

 

Nature is what we know

But have no art to say,

So important our wisdom is

To Her Simplicity.

 

It is not important if the subject matter is a tree, a mountain, the sea, a rice field, or a boat; what is important is the variance of shape, texture, the harmonious combination of dark and light. The paintings I have chosen for this Website are all expressions of my fascination with those elements.

I work almost exclusively with the contrast of warm and cold colours because it allows me to be totally in control of the final work. The actual concept of a painting is only the beginning – the real excitement comes later in the process when I mix the colour and see the tremendous result.

I hope that you will receive some pleasure from viewing my website.
