Black Background Abstracts - I have always loved to take black as a background and use bold colours for contrast. This adds power to the communication of specific ideas and concepts. This new gallery in my portfolio includes my latest series...Back in Black! Kissing on the beach and Tribal Beat Colours are distilled down to the bare essentials of passing on an impression or point in life. Some of these works were first created in 1999 in a much smaller format. I have taken them to essentials, updated the file size and brought them to a larger size canvas with my Wacom tablet. I hope you enjoy this new side of my art.
Biography - For years I searched for the roots to my artistic cravings. When I first discovered digital art in August 1999, it was apparent this form of expression was a perfect fit. The digital realm allows me to spread out to multiple levels of creativity. My approach to art is best summed up by Allen Saunders, who in 1957 wrote “ Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans”. This phrase was later made popular by John Lennon in his song "Beautiful Boy".
You are invited to visit my community groups "Life Is what Happens" and "Bold Colours"
Both of my groups include wonderful artists from all over the world with a broad range of artwork.
The latest additions to my gallery are featured in the slide show below:
