Artist bio: I am a self -taught artist whose love of history brought my hand to the brush and my vision to the canvas a decade ago. My passion for the art and history of the Renaissance and Baroque Europe and inspiration from the 17th Century Dutch Masters, made me confident of the style and manor in which I wanted to paint. I felt moved to recreate in my own manner, the elegance, mood and spirit of the painters of the Golden Age. Each piece I create is done by using the earliest of oil techniques. Simply put, thin layers of translucent paint, applied one after another, resulting in vibrant colors and effects, giving a realistic feeling of depth. Smooth and fluid is the overall feel of this technique and patience is a must.
