It is more than to evoke emotion but to touch the senses. My signature exploration in art and award winning series “Sculptures in Canvas”. These works are three-dimensional abstracts created with just raw canvas and oil.

(2) Color is added with approximately 5 to 6 layers of paint to create a field of depth using color to enhance to sculpture.

My camera lens became my brush and you now see what I witnessed as a personal Monet of her beauty.
