My paintings explore the ideas of movement, gesture, emotions and traces of becoming. I want to take the beholder to a place of full and deep energy.
Painting is a conduit to emotions and experiences that have impacted my life. Relying upon my personal journey to influence and guide the creative process allows my work to continually evolve.
My mediums are acrylic, watercolor, ink and colored pencil on paper. Depending on the piece, I use one or any combination of these in layers to build up the image.
I create visually stunning fine art glass and mirror sculpture that are illuminated with a vibrant color changing light system controlled by a 44 key wireless remote. All art is sketched, cut and carved by hand using aluminum oxide, high speed rotary and a chipper.
I am a contemporary acrylic artist who just began painting last year. I love expressing myself and trying new techniques and fun mediums. Abstracts and painting knives are my zen.
I paint in oils on canvas mounted on birch plywood. My technique is good composition and values, and vibrant colors done loosely for an impressionistic effect. My studio is 85% the great outdoors unless the weather or canvas size doesn’t permit.
Through art I aspire to show truth by finding the beauty in this crazy, imperfect, layered masterpiece called life. Because life is an artist we could only hope to become.
My art is about color. Studio Portico is tucked in an English garden offering lots of inspiration. I find my expressionistic oil painting style with bold strokes the most expressive.
I am an Australian artist based in Malaysia, and the colour and competing aspects of modern and traditional life inspire my artworks. From my studio in the garden and with views to daily street life, my paintings and mixed media works are created using strong layers of colours.
I am a Canadian Expressionist Artist, creating colorful paintings of Abstract Mosaics and Romantic Silhouettes. Using acrylic colors on canvas, my unique style embodies a mix of simplicity, color and inspiration.
I am a fourth generation Yosemite National Park, California native and enjoy creating my colorful oil paintings outdoors. I use brush and palette knife to craft richly textured and energetic work.
My work includes watercolor and acrylic paintings integrated with form and color that intertwine with rhythmic layers of feelings. The focus of my creative spirit is fundamentally the relationship with our inner self and externally with the people around us.
Painting is like opening a bottle of fizzy drink in my tummy. It tickles and swirls and makes me almost lightheaded. Out flows a dance of colours woven with symphony and harmony onto the canvas. After hours of dedication and contemplation just pure satisfaction! The next day I long for the feeling and grab a new canvas to start the addiction all over again.
My body of work is diverse, from representational to abstract. My inspiration comes from observing the world around me; all I do is keep my eyes and mind open and take a look. My aim is to help clients realize their creative side with my artwork and the thoughts portrayed in them, challenging their thoughts and perceptions and ultimately make a positive effect in their daily life.
I work with pen, ink and watercolours. I often start with a pencil sketch, and then I ink in waterproof pen (unipen and Le Marvy pens) then watercolouring begins.
I paint with a mixture of pigmented beeswax and damar resin. I love encaustics (dating from 5th century BC) because the translucent quality of the beeswax permits light to radiate outwardly making the painting appear to shine from within and the many layers encourage viewers to look deeper.
