My work focuses mainly on nature and the way light creates the scene. Beginning with the image in my camera, I use software to create a painterly version of my vision.
“City Street…San Francisco” is from an ongoing series. It is a virtual reality painting using the Oculus Quest II and the Vermillion App on canvas using oils and a palette knife.
This painting evokes for me the idea that we can take ordinary things for granted, but when we pay attention to them, they can be life giving, just like water from a garden hose.
When painting, I begin with an initial idea, deconstructing the forms and playing with shapes and colors. I like to paint the figures in expressive gestures—quarreling, laughing, loving or just standing by themselves.
Co-creating with God’s spirit, I undertake to capture in oil paints those moments in nature that blaze with intense interplay of light and color and transform the scene causing us to catch our breath.
This artwork is inspired by my love for roses. I can never stop admiring the beauty of florals. As Frida Kahlo once said, “I paint flowers so they will not die.”
My new series SHE Will Rise, was inspired by the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Mixed media, layers and imagery help me convey anger, optimism, female strength and the tension of beauty amidst chaos.
I love to work with fabrics—silk mainly—for its light and evanescent texture. The creation appears random and I never know what the final result will be. In fact, I always add the title at the end.
I am a painter of memories—people I have met and places I have traveled to. I am attracted to both line and shape with an emphasis on color.
I am an intuitive abstract painter and paint without planned concepts or ideas. I enter a higher dimension naturally and let myself be guided. It’s a feeling that arises in me and I never know what the outcome will be.
My intense passion for detail, along with strong black-and-white contrast, drew me to the art of scratchboard. It allows me to put down incredibly delicate lines, achieving meticulous realism.
I am a painter of metaphysical realism. I spend much of my time endeavoring to compose ideas of science and spirituality into traditional materials such as oil paint and linen canvas.
My work is a simplified version of nature’s beauty using strong, bold and loosely applied colors. I wish for the viewer to experience a quietude of the soul.
I began reverse painting to create functional art to express beautiful Jewish traditions. This has blossomed into creating unique pieces for anyone who wishes to express their own culture and heritage in meaningful everyday art.
My work tells stories—my stories, other people’s stories and stories not yet told. I love to leave the viewer wondering about what is happening and the meaning behind each work.
My paintings contain rhyme and rhythm. I repeat elements to create cohesion and comfort. I use dot patterns to elicit happiness, whimsy and fun, and overlapping shapes to give off the feeling of unity and connection.
A person needs to feel protected, to feel cherished by those who surround them. This painting portrays a sense of being protected, which is possibly an illusion, except for a fleeting moment.
I painted “Cuttin’ Fish” from a photo of my son working on a sport fishing boat. I wanted to capture his love of the ocean along with my love of painting it.
When I paint, my objective is to channel my intense emotions into work that is colorful, complex, sophisticated and urgent. My unfailing sense of humor also drives and informs everything I do.
