About the Artists
I am a professional artist and muralist and have been working at my style for over 20 years. The artwork combines a variety of techniques that I have studied over the course of years working with clients and whatever interested me at the time.
For the small illustrations and paintings, I have studied illuminated manuscripts from the first century onwards. I love the overlapping colors and the combination of calligraphy and art. There is also the gold and silver foiling that many pieces called for in that style. Taking this technique, I crossed over to my other works, mainly faux stained glass and oils, and illuminated the work with this. It brings another element into the design, a certain richness and elegance that appeals to me.
I also study many of the impressionists because of their use of light/shadow to denote shape and action in a piece. This quality to a work, the ability to demonstrate movement and action through light has always fascinated me. I believe that it creates energy in my artwork that attracts the viewer’s eye and brings it continually around the piece of work.
