In the beginning, as an artist, I painted images of France, the country I had fallen in love with some thirteen years before.
Now, what has become more and more significant to me, is the actual application of the paint- thicker texture and use of various brushstrokes to express vitality, spontaneity and movement. My work is characterized by bold use of color. Though originally trained as an illustrator, I now lean towards a looser, slightly off kilter, and distilled depiction of people and places.
I paint intuitively and as I have matured as a painter, I find myself wanting to push the boundaries of shapes and forms into the borders of the abstract. It is this delicate balance between the representational and the abstract that currently fascinates and challenges me in my ongoing artistic journey.
