About these paintings…
Being a romantic at heart, every
once in a while my imagination
transports me to other periods in
time. This happens more so when I
am thumbing through a book with
paintings from the masters.
Flavor and Fragrance was born
while thumbing through books with
paintings by Henri Fontan Latour
and Manet. These were paintings
of flowers and food, filled with
color, like little jewels that one
wants to look at very closely.
At first it was a challenge, and
then I could not stop. I have tried
to make these little paintings have a
very personal feel.
