I fell in love with colour and texture the first time I visited Mexico. The colours radiated with warmth and created feelings of joy. When I arrived home I translated these feelings onto canvas using paint and texture. I enjoy working with acrylic paints, mediums, glazes and encaustics as they allow me to work quickly. The acrylic mediums allow me to add texture which adds shape and interest to my paintings. I often incorporate round shapes into my abstracts, the shapes combined with texture and colour create interesting eye movement. Adding glazes to my paintings allow me to add many transparent layers creating bright luminous colours. My paintings whether painted with acrylics or encaustics whether abstract, landscapes or floral are all painted with bright, luminous colours and texture. Creating art is an endless journey full of adventure and constant learning. What a great journey it is!
