My work explores the subject of crystals and minerals which comes from my long time hobby of collecting these precious stones. I use acrylic paints on large sized canvases in order to fully immerse the viewer in the color experience. I am intrigued by the colour, translucency and luminosity of these naturally occurring wonders. I allow the unique colours, patterns and play of the highlights in the crystals to direct my painting but most of all I simply like to have fun with the creative process. My work focuses on capturing the brilliance of the colours and lights while highlighting the expressive and unique essence of each individual crystal.
