I like to weave my colors throughout the canvas to give balance and composition. My themes are generally women, music and nature. I have been described as a cross between cubism and fauvism and sometimes a reminder of stained glass. My new plein air painting groups, since landing in California, have definitely influenced me. The Pacific is so inspiring -- be it the breathtaking landscape or the energy of the sea. My goal is to capture that!
