I love to hear the whispers of the old portrait masters and the nudging of the new photographic artists. I grew up with Rembrant and Vermeer. My Dutch grandmother was an oil painter who could wield a paintbrush over a canvas with the artistry and precision of a Dutch master. The smell of turpentine and oil paint is forever engrained in my memory. Hovering over her shoulder, I would watch as, stroke by stroke, images took shape. And, if I was lucky, she would give me my own canvas to practice with. Of course, in those days, it took days, sometimes weeks, for the paint to dry.
Today, I specialize in fine art paintings, where photographic images are transformed into stunning works of art through hand rendered digital artistry. Photoshop is the medium where I paint, stroke by stroke. Whether I am creating a simple family portrait, a complex painterly composition, or a fine art restoration, digital media is the vehicle bridging photography with my imagination. The final piece is then carefully printed on high quality fine art mounted paper or canvas, both ready to frame.
My hope is that you will visit the galleries....linger on an image.... and discover the desire to have a unique work of art created for your own home. Timeless, whimsical and beautiful, these images are sure to thrive indefinitely in your home.
