Ready to Hang
My paintings capture the intensity and the very essence of my relationship to art. Floral images, from earliest childhood, have always remained the lynchpin that would lead me to further explorations for my artistic expressions.
I have seriously attempted other avenues of expression, such as portraits and abstract painting, but personal satisfaction has always eluded me.
Even in painting landscapes, a floral image may crop up here or there and often overtake it to become a floral landscape or a floral garden landscape. Still life suffers the same fate.
