Follow Your Rhythm, Oil on canvas, framed, 36 x 36
“A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he be at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be.” – Abraham Maslow
The arts inspire me to nourish my creative soul. Inspiration is the moment in which the spirit within is revealed. Music is one miraculous source of inspiration that can spark the divine place within you. The painting represents iconic musicians who opened their heart and performed with passion.
The statue of the flute player is situated in the Gardens of the Belvedere in Vienna. She is accompanied by musical icons, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson.
Playful, Oil on Canvas, framed, 36 x 36
Three little girls enjoying a happy moment together.
My preferred subject material is painting the human body, life scenes and nature. I found all this and much more in my travels. I have been painting the beauties of Africa through its people hoping to transmit a lasting emotion to the viewer by showing a different aspect of this continent.
Through my medium of choice, oil on canvas, I challenge myself with the old-master’s technique of realism painting with a personal and contemporary touch.

“As visual artists, we are on an infinite adventure to pursue self – expression and step into the endless journey to find our unique creative process. Through this creative struggle, our personalities echo and it is inevitable that in each work of art that we strive to create, we inevitably leave a piece of ourselves.”

“The best Art teacher – Nature. The big goal of class art teacher – to teach students how to learn from Nature.”
A place between now & forever, Oil on canvas, framed, 24 x 36
“My work is my art. My art is my passion. For me painting is about visual intimacy. It is studying, exploring, analyzing, and experiencing nature or everyday objects, connecting my eyes, my intellect and my emotions. Still life painting, for me, is the process of immersion that involves contemplation, concentration and spontaneity. It is a dynamic process where I push the limits of my skill and creativity.”
Steve Robinson 1955 – 2013
Green One (Hawt/Hot), Raku ceramic wall hanging, 16 x 9.5
For Robinson “there’s no end in sight… I’d like to complete that ultimate piece of Raku…a quest in a sense. I do want to get to that ultimate piece, and I don’t want to get to it. If I do — I’m through.”
Raku originated in Japan in the 16th century. It involves glazing pottery, firing it — often over open flames – and plunging the pieces into cold water. The results are unpredictable and stunning.
