A little of the art nouveau look crept into this painting. The gold and bronze bring a wonderful framework for this wild beauty.
I’ve always loved painting folds. They fascinate me and I enjoy the three dimensional look. I love the art nouveau era and it will appear from time to time in my future works as it does in this one. Gold features over most of this work to represent the richness of who...
The message behind this painting is to remind women that they are empowered, and to rise up to who they are called to be without allowing their gender to hold them back.
“Regal Sisters” is a unique art deco painting with luxury, glamour, and a hint of Klimt. The bold geometry, texture and detail make this work distinctive. Embellished with glitter and rich colors, the overall effect gives the sense of royalty and confidence. In...
This is the second in my series on self esteem. I see people as beautiful and unique and this painting is to remind people to be free to be themselves and not be influenced to strive to be like someone they aren’t.
This textured work has my favourite complementary colours which helps the painting come alive and the diagonal lines help express the movement of dance.
This young woman represents so many today who are wondering about their destiny and what her life holds for the future. Because each life is valuable and full of promise and potential I have added gold leaf to highlight the worth of an individual.
I used to be a fashion illustrator and fashion designer so I often gravitate back to painting the female form. I painted this to remind female believers that as the King’s daughters we have a royal lineage. We can hold our heads high, living confidently out of the...
In a magic moment with my camera in Whangamata, New Zealand, I captured this scene which I was compelled to paint. The little boy was obviously a beginner fisherman and the logo on the man’s shorts “Starter” gave me a clear message on what to title this...
I had the desire to express a form of joy on canvas and this was the result. Different to anything I’ve painted and but I really enjoyed the process.
This is the first of a new series. I see a young lady curious about her destiny and where she fits in the world. The gold represents the treasures of her destiny that are unique and almost within reach, yet at this point mysterious and unknown.
A special work representing the nations of the world, united as one under the tree of life. Together and united we are stronger and make the world a better place.
I always had a desire to paint a portrait of Princess Diana and because I live in New Zealand and I couldn’t see her in reality or take my own photographs I started my search for the perfect photo of her to copy and paint. I found the one I liked but it was in black...
This work is enhanced with texture, gold leaf and glitter representing the uniqueness and value of people. I didn’t know the design of the dress when I began painting and I enjoyed the design process and seeing the final outcome.
The Hebrew letters on this painting say “Valuable”. It was my way of stating that I value greatly the Jewish people. I loved painting the designs in the background and the dresses embellished with gold and bronze.
This textured work depicts a young, confident lady who knows her value and knows where she’s going. Nothing will stop her reaching her dreams. The gold represents her incredible value.
I have painted with gold a little in the past but I am now bringing gold paint and soon gold leaf into most of my paintings. This is my first ‘serious’ painting in my ‘gold’ series. “Shayna” means ‘beautiful’ ‘God is gracious’ and she represents a woman of...
Hand chosen scriptures from Psalms in the Bible cover this painting. My purpose is to encourage people to know the scriptures and the promises of God so that there is more peace and security knowing God’s love for them.
I have always loved portraying the three dimensional look in a painting and over the years it’s been revealed in much of my work including my sculpture paintings.
