Having been away from art for a long time (probably since the mid-90s) I have recently had my love for art rekindled. Mostly from a need to reduce stress and decompress, I made the decision to pick up a brush again and get creative.

When I was studying art in the late 80s and early 90s my style was pretty much semi-abstract using mostly oils and water colors. I really love color and depth, and feel very drawn to landscapes in the impressionist style, so that is where I feel myself wanting to focus. I thought about going back to oil or watercolor, but have decided to try my hand at acrylics, which I have never worked with in the past.

I have really enjoyed checking out the work of others on this site and have drawn a lot of inspiration from their work. I hope others will enjoy what I am doing and feel free to leave constructive criticism and advice.
