Fire – 8×8 original or museum quality prints available in 3 sizes on Artrepreneur. The original piece which is acrylic on canvas painting I painted the orange, red and slight tinges of yellow background in a circular motion. This gives the piece a centred effect like it is a photograph taken with a zoomed in lens. When the background was completed I added in the blue streak which is the fire in the image. That was completed using a drip effect.
Mindset – 10×8.25 original acrylic on canvas painting is SOLD.
Museum quality prints in 3 sizes available on Artrepreneur. The mindset of the viewer plays a part in what this abstract artwork is. This painting began with a pink and orange gradient. From there I added a bright blue and white paint pour which I let dry for a few days and then I hand painted on all the details that are on the surface making sure to leave parts of the original paint pour and the background visible. I used acrylic paint on canvas for this piece because it dries pretty quickly which allows me to layer colour and all the details.
Sunset – 11×14 original available on Artrepreneur. This art piece is an abstract acrylic layered painting. After each layer I allow the paint to dry and then apply another layer. This painting started out with an orange base coat and flourished into this finished product of oranges, purples, reds and yellows. This artwork is reminiscent of a partially covered sunset.
Veil 8×10 inches – Original available on Artrepreneur. This is a blue, black and white acrylic painting on canvas. Dark and light blue mixed together making things beyond the main image seem to disappear. This image is an abstract portrait.
City-12×9 inches – Original available on Artrepreneur. The colours I used to create this piece are orange and blue mainly to show the grit of a major city. As you stare at this painting longer the other colours begin to pull through as if they are stepping out onto a busy sidewalk from apartment entrances. Yellow, green, brown like the dust that kicks up when a bus drives close to a curb. What is a city to you? Is it a building, a small park, a tiny coffee shop, a wall or a feeling.
Marvelous-12×9 inch original available on Artrepreneur. Abstract, acrylic artwork. The movement of this piece was amplified by using paint knives of different sizes and different amounts of pressure on the canvas. What may seem random is not. The composition is symbolic of a vessel and the colours are both cold and warm at the same time.
Savvy– 8×8 inch original or museum quality prints in 3 sizes available on Artrepreneur. acrylic abstract painting. Handcrafted using a large paint knife and paint brush on canvas.

Quiet Wave– 8×10 inch original available on Artrepreneur. Acrylic abstract painting. Navy Blue, purple and pink acrylic abstract. I used a large paintbrush for this artwork and wanted my brush strokes to be visible to the eye. The colours chosen for this piece are ominous yet serene which adds to the pieces complexity. This artwork is different because I did not use paint knives at all. I wanted it to be more of a blended colour piece.
Flourish – 9×12 inch original or museum quality prints in 3 sizes available on Artrepreneur. Abstract acrylic artwork. Hand made using paint knives.

Cerulean Cheer – 8×10 inch original or museum quality prints in 3 sizes available on Artrepreneur. Abstract acrylic painting on canvas This painting started out with a very colourful base coat. Once it was dry I added an overlay of grey and then pulled some of the grey off the canvas with a cloth to reveal points of bold colour underneath. I gravitated to using Cerulean blue in this painting because it contrasts very well against grey and stands out. The boldness of this blue can’t be consumed by the grey. Therefore, Cerulean blue signifies being unspoilt, not corrupted or polluted just Cerulean blue! Because of the layers of paint underneath that are peaking through like a spring garden this painting is rough and almost leathery in texture.
Chaotic – 8×10 original or museum quality prints in 3 sizes, available on Artrepreneur. A Grey, black, yellow and white acrylic painting on canvas. Reminiscent of a beautiful sea of tulips trampled on with tar. At first it’s unsettling until you look beyond the chaotic to find the beauty of the whole scene as it is. The black tar is a complimentary stark contrast to what is beneath. And yet, the tulips still grow beyond the reach of the chaotic!
Blue Denim and Butterflies
Blue Denim and Butterflies – 8×8 original available on Artrepreneur. This is an acrylic on canvas painting. I used pallet knives and a paint brush to apply the various colours in the background and added a green circle and a few stripes of navy blue. I then applied touches of grey which I pulled off with a wet cloth. This left the remaining paint filtering through creating a faded jean effect. Once the paint was dry I applied splashes of red to contrast the pale orange throughout. This artwork is symbolic of the end of a beautiful relaxing summer day. Wearing soft denim while butterflies fly by and enjoy the last moments of sunlight.
Vivid – 20×16 original available on Artrepreneur. This is an acrylic on canvas painting. I experimented with paint pouring for this artwork.This painting brings about powerful, strong feelings.

Mercy – 10×8 Original or museum quality prints in 3 sizes, available on Artrepreneur. This is an abstract expressionist artwork created using paint brushes, pallet knives, and acrylic paint on canvas. Mercy is a nod to the current state of the oceans, seas, rivers, lakes. What used to be is now tainted and has been for a long time. The water has changed and so has everything that lives within it along with the earth itself. Everything is connected and mercy needs to prevail because of these connectivities of life. We do not stand alone. Nothing does. Finding the good and keeping it alive as opposed to tearing it apart.
Blaze – 20×16 original or museum quality prints in 1 size, available on Artrepreneur. This is an abstract artwork created using paint brushes and acrylic paint on canvas.

Paying attention to the shapes, movement, colours and adjusting to our environment rather than forcing them to adjust to us.
Euphoric – 12×9 original or museum quality prints in 3 sizes, available on Artrepreneur. This is an abstract expressionist artwork created using paint brushes, pallet knives, and acrylic paint on canvas. Showcasing the multiple layers of a persons character. Both magnifying and displaying that beneath the cynicism and pain there is happiness and hope. The colours that make the top layer are subtly waiting below like the euphoric feeling that froths up occasionally.
Timid – 10×8 original or museum quality prints in 3 sizes, available on Artrepreneur. This artwork was created using acrylic paint, paint brushes and paint knives on canvas. The background is grey and the mingling of yellow, black and grey show off just enough. For some, the elongated yellow triangles might catch the eye first, they give a nod to line art, but looking beyond what initially catches the eye is rewarding. Moving forward without fear, Timid is an artwork examining the depth of what lays beyond the surface.
Brevity.45 – 10×8 original available on Artrepreneur. This artwork was created using acrylic paint, paint brushes and paint knives on canvas. The background is bright blue and then layers of magenta and a very light teal blue. From there I added the tapered blue lines. I called this one brevity because the sections behind the blue tapered lines are brief glimpses, almost like moving clouds cutting in front, behind and beyond buildings. Distracting but also fading in and out of view.
Ambient – 10×8 original or museum quality prints available in 3 sizes on Artrepreneur. This artwork was created using acrylic paint, paint brushes and paint knives on canvas. A painted blue background with red and white over-top using a pallet knife. This is a continued experimentation of what is viewable and what isn’t. It could be a look at the ocean through the mouth of a predator or tall seaweed imposing its limbs to distract you from what is beyond.
