"Sky Fall Inlet" is a good example of an expressionistic seascape. The final piece looks quick and easy to create. However, there is much planning and knowledge that goes on before the canvas is touched. This is a pallet knife oil painting that can give direct color against color gestures. There is the suggestion of barrier island trees across a body of water that grounds the painting. Just as water reflects the sky, this piece carries that to the extreme. The suggested horizon has been compromised by merging the reflection with the actual sky. Bringing the sky below the horizon abstracts the seascape to the point where there is no separation of earth from sky.

Art and creativity has always been part of who I am, but I only really started to focus on painting full time at the age of 50, following a long and successful career in advertising. As an artist, I love working in many different styles and exploring a wide range of subject matters. The beauty of online galleries lies in their eclectic art collections, and without the pressure of brick and mortar galleries dictating what I paint, I am free to paint whatever inspires me. Painting for me is an experience of falling headlong into inspiration. An image I come across will stick in my head and refuse to leave until it finds its way onto the canvas. My work is visually diverse, and there are very few painting styles that don’t inspire me in someway or another. My paintings range from abstract and cubist, to impressionistic and realistic. Most recently, I’ve been inspired by quirky and retro TV shows to tell a story through my paintings. The lighting and cinematography of these shows inspire me to paint dramatic moments in time, and I create unique, intriguing characters that are open to interpretation.
