Reincarnation.

As a recovering painter of all things realistic (think: every–vein-in-the-leaf), my style has evolved to the challenge of abstract. It’s all about loosening up, going with the flow, a sort of “giving in.” Color and texture are magnificent things!

You’ll find the edges of my paintings generously swathed in paint and quite textural. I believe edges to be an important component of the artwork and devote a considerable amount of attention to this oft-overlooked detail. These abstracts require no frame although you are free to frame if you wish.

Paintings are protected with gloss sealant.

Art works are signed/dated on the back. Hanging materials are included but may not be attached as you may choose to display the piece in a variety of ways.

All paintings arrive with a COA.

Creating abstracts is a great adventure, a wonderful journey of discovery. Please join me.
