Baby orangutans playing in the golden sun while Banana Beak keeps a watchful eye. This was an acrylic on canvas mural of baby orangutans I created for my daughter’s room. The golden background is very art nouveau with all the forms organic and flowing. My style is Dutch Golden Age however, I combine modern surfaces and mediums with old world techniques in the hopes of creating something new. In my portraiture, I achieve the intensity, and romance of paintings that first gained a fashionable clientele at Court in the 1660s, and were sought after by the Dukes of York and Buckingham and Queen Anne.
