Ludovic Knoth describing "White Tide"...
"This piece is a great example of expressionism. One can see the depiction of a beautiful sun rise hitting a body of water. Within a specific color pallet, individual colors are layered on the canvas in quick decisive strokes. The strokes of color, value and texture work together to achieve its depth of field. Unifying the painting by the use of pure white adds a top layer and creates a painting that shimmers with color. This technique seems effortless but requires much knowledge from the artist."

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.
