The world is but a canvas to the imagination

Acrylics - Other/Misc.

My subjects focus on nature combined with colorful imagery from dreams.

I often have an idea or element in mind but often I let the subject reveal itself to me on the canvas. Each blank canvas is a playground to explore.

I find inspiration from contemplating nature, from all art forms as well as from works of other artists such as Alphonse Mucha and the Art Nouveau style, as I love the way the lines flow to create organic shapes and movement. Georgia O'Keefe and Susan Seldon Boulet for their use of colors, shapes and textures to express their subjects.

I work mainly with acrylics. I find it very versatile and it allows more freedom when experimenting with different mediums such as adding modeling paste to create dimension, using ceramic stucco, leafs, twine or cheesecloth.

To achieve different textures, my paintings are usually built up in several layers while still revealing the colors or textures underneath.
The paint is applied thick much like oil knife painting...
