I like simple. There's a kind of purity in simple paintings. They demand time and contemplation. Through vast expanses of space, you're asked to look within, to find your own feelings.
This minimalist style preference began in my graphic designer days when I designed corporate brochures with a limited budget. To do this successfully, I relied on "negative space," surrounding tastefully-executed typography, or a precious nugget of an illustration with wonderful, pure nothingness. The result was classic and elegant restraint, which I adored.
Now a fine artist, I continue this appreciation for the less-is-more aesthetic. I invite you to linger awhile. Come inside my paintings and complete them with your own eyes, mind and heart.
