My post-impressionistic, impasto oil paintings are made with energetic palette knife strokes on canvas. Energy and movement burst out by using vibrant layers and pointillism, creating a raised 3D effect. I give my paintings life with spontaneous strokes of color which dance on the canvas. The deep thickness of paint and various sized strokes bring out a tangible allure. Inviting, colorful layers allows me to share the joyful, free spirit of nature I feel when I paint.
