ABOUT DENISE

THIS IS MY HAPPY PLACE WHERE I SHARE MY INSPIRATION, IMAGINATION & AFFECTION FOR VISUAL CREATION

My paintings are an extension of my passion for colour and my need to fully engage myself in the raw process of creating a unique and original invention.  I know that the power of colour has an ability to generate it's own energy and effect on each one of us.  Drawn to healing and holistic therapy, I believe colour promotes enlightenment, intuition and creates a balance in every aspect of our daily lives. Art is my spiritual and sacred place where happiness, balance and harmony ignite my very being.


Inspiration & Nourishment
