Dreams into form.

Before the shoot

Properly capturing my paintings to show online and in print is an art from all its own.. At the moment I have 14 pieces of art that have yet to be pro-photographed, and a few that have sold before ever having a chance to be shot. Thought I would update the blog section with a few […]

Underpainting & Collaborations

I love working my clients’ energy into a piece when I am creating a commission work. I spend time with them, and absorb … reinterpret my experience of them into pallet and form.. Its beyond logic and useless to try and explain this process. . and yet when it is complete, it makes perfect sense. […]

Crowned light

Blog entry numéro 1 A place to share a little bit about my art and how I filter the world around me…some insight into what draws me closer to the Devine and conjures a desire to spill over onto the canvas.
