"Palette knife artist"
I'm an impasto painter focusing on super luscious, frosting-like paintings created using only palette knives. My work has been exhibited across the mid-Atlantic US with solo exhibits at the Hylton Center, Glen Allen Arts Center, and the Arlington Arts Center.
Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"The second most item I use most when painting, next to oil paint, is paper towels. Every time after I apply color to the canvas, I wipe my knife totally clean with a paper towels. This ensures that the color remains pure and bright throughout the whole process."
