Abstract Floral Paintings

introduction

A few words about me

I have spent a lifetime exploring the emotional effect of color. As a make-up artist, I consider myself more of a colorist and appreciating the effect color has on each of us is key to my paintings. Floral beauty is my sanctuary, causing a visceral response to the beauty and the possibilities through flowers and color – putting voice to the canvas through paint and palette knife in an impressionistic fashion. Each one of my paintings provoke an emotion that is pleasing, whimsical and delicious.

I consider myself a colorist. Understanding the effect color has on someone is key to my paintings. Floral beauty is my sanctuary, I respond viscerally and want to capture the feeling I get when I see, smell and touch flowers and nature. Each one of my paintings provoke an emotion that is pleasing, whimsical and delicious. When I paint, color and texture are the key components and consideration. I paint with acrylic paint on canvas using a palette knife. Color smearing and canvas lacing are techniques I use to create texture and dimension.  I believe art should be enjoyed and accessible to all who love it. Most days you can find me in my studio painting and discovering something new the color and canvas have to offer!

My Inspiration

Beauty is all around us…it is up to each of us to appreciate and respond to it according to our soul desire. I happen to paint.

My Interpretation

I paint with acrylic on canvas using mostly palette knives. I usually color mix to find the exact shade I see in my head or that of my inspiration piece.
