I use an unique technique — a surface full of small stipples of paint from the painting knife. This decadent surface of texture brings my work to life. In addition, the color, shapes, and the subtle allusions in my title, lead you through the emotional subject of my work. There is a sense of radiance as the light moves through the painting. My work feels expansive, as if growing out beyond the confines of the canvas, creating space with the drama of its bold color, strong lines, and copious markings. I was awarded the three year "Carte Sejour Compétences et Talents" visa, by the French government for my significant contribution as a contemporary artist to the culture in France. I have exhibited in Canada, United States, United Kingdom, South Africa and France.
