It is incredibly exciting to be among the first to explore a brand new art medium and be able to define and refine this new form. Each of my paintings is an exploration of the possibilities and surprise discoveries of what is possible on my magic screen. The iPad is so versatile and responsive that I find myself experimenting with ideas from other periods and cultures and genres; I can play with gold leaf as it was used in Medieval altarpieces, Persian miniatures, Klimt paintings or Japanese prints. I can turn my paintings into collages of themselves, mix oil and water (colors), and a raft of other techniques that have not been possible before. I find myself pushing against the iPad's limitations. On its flat, shiny screen I work at creating texture and depth. If I were to define my style, I would say that I am a neo-modernist: I try to incorporate the entire history of world art but with a love of abstraction and complexity and by the nature of my medium, my work is rooted in a modernist sensibility but for the 21st century.
