Traditional realist painting with orange, pink and neutral colors

I am a contemporary realist painter who enjoys still life and portrait painting.

I have been creating art for many years but more recently have been able forgo my former professions as designer and then teacher, to pursue fine art as a career. My fondness for portraiture and figurative work extended to still life when I found that I could greatly increase my skill level through small exercises in still life painting. Moreover, all principles of design– texture, color, emphasis, unity, harmony and repetition can be explored conveniently through the arrangement of objects, flowers and fruit at my table. The symbolic nature of a particular object when placed strategically provides a subtle narrative. Emphasis is a tool I often utilize as I am intuitively drawn to depict simple compositions. Accentuating the subject through glowing light or careful arrangement is vital. The painting methods employed are a combination of wet on wet and a more traditional method of layered glazing.
