IMPACT 2016 Juried Show at NPCC, Toronto July 18th - August 15th, 2016



I started this series of mega cities with New York on my mind. This city fascinates me. The energy of New Yorkers, those that live within, commute to and from, and visitors alike feeds power and vibrance to this incredible city. After visiting Manhattan several times a year, I experienced the special drive for success that people pull for, to make it in a giant city. The red in my collages is intended to capture this very energy.

My painting, East Side Memories, captures the vibrant activity of day time and night life by the water at South Street Seaport while West Side Memories captures the green areas along the pedestrian trail on the Hudson River.

The destruction of the Twin Towers is represented by the ravished steel and concrete at the centre of the collage, contrasted by the cranes and construction of the several buildings that now call World Trade Centre home. To me, these cranes are representative of the people’s strength and courage in the face of fear and adversity.

Working on a new project. Painting family moments

Few years ago, I have saved the photo of my two daughters jumping in the Andes during a trip to Peru. I have cherished that picture for the untouched beauty of Nature in this part of the world and for the meaning that I have attached to that moment.... Two sisters sharing a travel experience while still young and free from the stress that eventually pollutes life.

Title for my latest painting. WITH A SONG IN MY HEART

I decided to leave my painting as you have seen it in the previous post. Mark making is for me like the signature on a document. It is not complete without it .

The birth of a new painting


Finally I decided to go really big.... At least big for me.This painting when stretched will be 42" x 66" 
I am working with acrylics and lots of water This technique on an untreated canvas produces a batik effect that reminds me the textiles of the 60's
