I am in the process of uploading the photos into my gallery here. Hope you will come back to see more. I have a library of over 3000 photos of my work. I won't be able to present all of them, but will have new pictures listed daily for a while. You can google my name to find me on the web. Thanks for looking, Bea
I like to think about myself as an expressionist even though my style of work probably best fall into the category of Contemporary Impressionism. Well, whatever it may be you can definitely call me a Colorist.
When I paint I am taken by the transcendental vibrant color and the contrast of light and dark that are the reflection of emotion and energy of the creative process. I am known best for my city rainy night scenes with my signature miniature distant silhouettes with umbrellas as well as an extensive series of New Orleans works painted using a palette knife.
Thick impasto was always very dominant in all of my paintings no matter if a brush or a knife were used. I started painting with a palette knife in 1998 and fell in love with the effects I was getting as well as the possibilities of this technique. The knife turned out to be the voice of my imagination.
All of my work is original, signed and acompanied by a certificate of authenticity. I have an extensive experience as an artist working in oils. I have been painting for 28 years and although my medium of choice are oils, I have also worked in acrylics and pastels.
Besides painting I am also a glass artist and a silversmith.
