I decided a few years ago to move from realistic landscape painting more abstract work. At the same time, I moved from oil paint to acrylic paint. This has been a great journey for my art. I like the experimental exploration of a new medium. My Waterlines series, inspired by the rising sea levels and my love for the sea, I worked to create the layered feeling of the sea and costal planes. My Waterforce series includes the use of acrylic inks in a gestural application to express the energy of the sea. And my Sacred Sites series is my way of using art as a protest against those destroying our planet and social heritage.
