The sun rises and sets on the horizon.
There's a beauty to minimalist compositions that is both calming and captivating.
They demand time and contemplation, allowing the viewer to immerse themselves in the vast expanse of space and explore their own emotions.
My paintings are visual meditations driven by color, atmosphere and movement. They impart a quiet energy that resonates with the more reflective nature of our being.
My appreciation for quieter works began during my years as a graphic designer. I learned the power of negative space, surrounding beautiful typography and stunning images with pure nothingness. The result was classic and elegant restraint, which I adored.
As a fine artist, I continue to embrace the less-is-more aesthetic. My abstract landscapes are pregnant with negative space – vast skies and waters – resting places that captivate viewers and bring a feeling of peace. Whether it's the magnificent sunset of Manila Bay, the brooding grey skies over Lake Ontario in winter, or the placid waters of Lake Michigan, each of my paintings invites the viewer to step into a world of serenity and beauty.
Through vast expanses of space, my paintings quiet the mind and soothe the spirit. They encourage viewers to look within and surrender to the beauty of nature. Come inside my paintings and linger a while. Then complete them with your own eyes, mind, and heart.
