Figurative work for me is an inner journey - a personal exploration. Symbols, mystical meanings and mythology speak to me. Working on canvas, paper or finely gessoed panels using old master's techniques allows me to explore different ways of painting. Tempera on board gives an amazing glow with the application of layer upon layer of fine glazes. Canvas gives a different result. Paper has a direct and unique quality that I love. Paint reflects differently on paper; charcoal and pencil brings it alive.
The works on paper are often done in groups. Some fit together to create large wall sized compositions. They can be assembled and reassembled in different sizes.or stand alone.
Some pieces below are from a series of Goddesses painted on wooden board and range from 48 to 40 inches wide by 60 inches high Some are triptychs, comprised of three paintings.
The TARA series is available for sale printed on canvas or paper in a limited edition of 12.. I welcome commissions and can paint a Goddess or deity to order. Kindly inquire.
