Contemporary Fine Art Paintings &

Mendocino Digital Photo Collages

The 'heart' symbol has been heavily used throughout the years in my artwork, as it is such a wonderful and strongly emotional icon that is easily understood by all of us around the globe, and is able to express and address many worthwhile concepts of life.

In this series, I explore the colors of everyday love by finding everyday love symbols and altering these to convey certain concepts about love. The colors both represent different aspects of love indicating different moods.

It emerged as a progression from a series of lone hearts looking for love, to the ‘wish fulfilled’ image, which is actually a wish to be fulfilled as the date is 2007 in the image, and then ‘cozy in a corner’ as the wish fulfilled with two hearts together.

dream from the past,..

Digitally painted photos of found,
everyday hearts in Mendocino, California.

"it is not that i 'am into hearts'.
rather, hearts are in me,
and they want to come out in my art.

I see hearts everywhere:
on the wall, in the sand, between flowers,
on a bench, on candles, doors, windows,
on objects of art, signs, and in advertisements,
formed by twigs on the street, you name it.

so i take pictures of them and paint my story.
to me, the heart is
the 365-day-of-the-year icon of love.
all kinds of love, and all kinds of good."

The works in this series have been on exhibit at the Books Inc. Gallery, Mountain View, CA, USA, in 2007.

They will be exhibited again in the San Francisco Bay Area.
