What excites me most when I am painting is colour and how colours create a mood or a feeling. I love working with black gesso and will start a painting by drawing in white on the black. I developed my style of painting when experimenting with different mediums and combining them with gilding. I wanted to change the underlying texture to create an interesting surface. I am happy when my paintings remind me of a wood block print or a piece of tapestry.
I mainly focus on birds because I feel they provide some additional interest, personality or humor in my paintings. I enjoy the process of layering in each painting and planning the drawing, mediums, gilding and colour. I am always surprised at the end when the painting reveals itself, which is the biggest payoff and reward.
