My paintings are a unique impressionist or abstract art. I create exciting color combinations using an unusual watercolor technique of commercial dyes on heavy fabric. The process uses various methods to apply the colors, from washes to intricate details sometimes painted by the drop. I use hand-crafted, custom made tools from Indonesia and brushes to create distinctive textures using hot wax as a resist.
At the end of these complicated procedures, I remove the wax, and apply coats of poly acrylic sealer adding a lustrous protective seal. The paintings are stretched gallery wrap style, so no framing is needed.
This art was inspired by my travels to exotic places throughout the world. I left for art school in Europe as a teenager. My adventures continued throughout Europe, Asia, North Africa and all of the Americas, where I journeyed from the jungles of the Amazon to the peaks of the Andes.
Each of my paintings is truly a one of a kind distinctive creation.
