Art critics have referred to the style of my work as Neo-Abstraction with mystical tendencies. As a result of my postgraduate studies in silver-smith and painting, the style of work reflects my enthusiasm for both the stylized design elements and the three-dimensional, illusionistic rendering inherent in the realistic drawing and painting styles. The subjects, whether representational or non-objective, are splintered into a flowing repetition of colorful undulating rhythms that are inspired by natural forms, especially ocean waves. The landscapes, figures, flowers, or designs are abstacted by breaking them down into curvilinear patterns of repeating colors that move through and around the composition in rhythmical variations.
Although I have experience in varied mediums, I work mainly in colored pencil rendering, watercolor, and layered, paper collage. The colored pencil renderings on dark backgrounds are shaded with the grisaille technique to impart a shimmering, luminous quality while those done on light backgrounds have various types of paper, especially handmade, as their foundation to create either soft or intense color effects. The collages are constructed with 4 to 15 layers of various papers that are then shaded with colored pencils or watercolors to enhance the dimensional quality of the work.
