Luminous fine art paintings
My paintings are the result of constant experimentation and exploration through the years. I create original luminous paintings by layering oil paint, acrylic glazes and gold & silver metal leaf on canvas to achieve a light quality that I craved. The canvas radiates with the sun and moon's celestial light.
I also fabricate jewelry & "art blocks" from my original art images.
