Like the harmonic rhythm of notes in a song...

In this series, I use color to elicit a feeling. Different combinations resulting in different vibrations, aiming to transcend the viewer out of the ordinary. Created with acrylic, ink and pastels on Mulberry rice paper. 


For me, it is an intuitive dance of play, working until I find just the right combination of color and texture. I know when it's done when it elicits a feeling inside, a zing, a ping of joy or pleasure that often only comes with the final pop of color on the piece. 


Inspired from color and pattern in nature. 


I love the color and effect created when unexpected colors are combined.

You'll find everything from the finest oil pigment stick to the silkiest fluid ink in my work. The glossiness of an acrylic paint next to the chalky-texture of a pastel. There can be a thousand different shades and finishes of hot pink and I often experiment to find just the right one that will add a burst of feeling to the piece.
