I almost always paint in oils.As a self-taught painter, I love to explore and experiment with different techniques, favoring the painting style of the Old Masters. Underpaintings (grisaille) are created, followed by layers of glazes and opaque highlights for depth and richness of color. Many of my originals and commissioned works have found happy homes in people’s living spaces and businesses which thrills me to no end”.
