1.perfect happiness; great joy.
An expressionistic collection of strong marks & vibrant color. The abstract art pieces in this collection are meant to evoke emotion and it is the job of the viewer to interpret the feelings for themselves. The artist feels bliss while painting- how does that translate to the viewer? Enjoy the large scale pieces and revel in the lush colors inspired by gorgeous natural hues and organic lines and shapes.
As an artist I love abstraction as it allows me to be intuitive and expressive. Non-objective painting is soul nurturing for the artist and viewer. I don’t subscibe to one particular style or approach with my art. EXPLORATION is key. My mood dictates my creativity. Lush colors and textures abound…
