My art philosophy is a simple one, it’s a journey, a journey that begins with an expression of myself and ends with a final product. I travel throughout each and every one of my artworks, experiencing a unique connection, with each piece as I create it. The materials, the mixing of the paint, the sound of the brush strokes against the surface, My own personal emotions and thoughts are combined, as I start my journey from beginning to end. If I can explain this in any other way, it would be me in my own world.
I have always had a love for the arts, and portrait painting, painting of people and scenes of the majestic outdoors, has become a focus of mine. I often paint with acrylics in winter and oils in summer. My family and friends are part of my journey and my inspirations because they are often the subject of my work.
As a small child, I grew up on the Islands of the Bahamas, so I have a great affinity for Beaches, nautical life, and how it is reflected in the faces of the Bahamian people. In my paintings, my imagery, use of texture and pattern, are intended to give the viewers a sensational experience, while the eyes give the viewer an entry to the soul. In my water-scapes, I portray flowing water, creating patterns and textures, imparting a soothing tone. I utilize patterns and texture in my work, to create paintings within paintings and convey a true love for the elements involved.
