I have studied fine art for over a decade and have a B.F.A. in Studio Art: Painting from Marywood University. From a young age, I have always been passionate about the arts, crafting and nature. Working primarily in oils I've continued to develop my skills as a fine artist through commissioned work and portraiture. This work has enabled me to perfect my own unique style using vibrant, luminous colors.My most successful and recent work focuses on a series of highly detailed floral paintings on 8 inch square wood panels. My 8x8 floral series has received widespread acclaim. These paintings are sought after by an audience of collectors both nationally and abroad.My 8x8 flower series are painted on primed 3/4" cabinet grade plywood and finished with a protective varnish. I paint in thin layers of oil paint, allowing the natural texture of the wood to come through. I then accent the textural quality by using a palette knife to spread the paint over the wood's surface. The paintings are framed with simple natural varnished lattice 1 3/8" deep and are ready to hang or stand upright. Each is a one-of-a-kind original piece of artwork, hand titled and signed on the back. I work from actual photographs and travel all over to botanical gardens, public parks, and local greenhouses taking reference photos and notes about each species.
