Modern Abstract Paintings

Color, texture and proportion combine in perfect harmony.

My modern abstract paintings are sure to blend well with your personal style. While my art is a reflection of my personal experiences and the various influences in my life, it often has no obvious subject or figure. Art can be the inspiration for a space or simply the finishing touch. Either way, bringing more art into your life can really improve your quality of life. Enjoy!

Less is More

Reduction and simplification are often my primary focus.

In my modern abstract paintings, I use texture and color to help express a mood or emotion. I apply texture first to the substrate, because I like how the texture affects how the color looks and is applied later. I use additive and subtractive techniques as I paint. I work in thin layers of acrylic paint, usually adding color from light to dark. This way, I can use water drips, a rag, other objects, even my hands to distress or remove the current layer of paint, revealing what is below. I find that this process results in a more unique and interesting piece of art, as it isn’t just what I add to the art, but what I subtract along the way that makes the final piece so visually interesting.
