My husband & I opened up an antique store in Ft. Langley where I grew up. Dealing with items devoted to craftsmanship, simple beauty, & whispers of stories past really tugged at my heart. While antiquing I became mesmerized with a 19th century painting by Petrus Van Schendel. He was of the Romantic Period & had an obsession with light, especially night scenes. It was then that I knew I had to start painting.
Fast drying acrylic paint using brushes & palette knives to build texture, form & layers of rich colours. All intuitively woven together to form a 2-dimentional story.
Divine light whether it be highlights of hair bathed in golden sunlight, reflecting light in a mirror, dim light in a room or twilight on a city street
