I work mostly in acrylic paint on stretched canvas in various sizes. I consider myself a colorist, and through my work I strive to create a balance of impressionism and realism while capturing the essence of a scene in a way that leaves just enough to the viewer's own imagination.
I like to use bold brush strokes to capture scenes and images on canvas through loose composition, fluid brush stroke, and shifting light. Acrylic paint is vivid in color and quick drying capabilities, which is why I enjoy working with it. It has immediate versatility and allows me to be more spontaneous and work quickly, keeping colors fresh while limiting the details so the viewer focuses on the essence of the piece. I try to say as much as possible with minimal brush strokes.
