ABOUT MY PAINTINGS
My paintings are impressionistic and simplistic. My goal is not to render the subject exactly but rather to explore it with paint and happily getting lost in the moment. A suggestion of the subject, a build up of paint and exciting strokes with my favourite painting knife.
ABOUT THE ARTISAN DOLLS & ANIMALS
Introducing "Firefly Works "a collection of Artisan Dolls & Animals". I love creating these dolls and enjoy watching their personalities emerge. Some of them express themselves with tattoos and body piercings making them truly individual.
