My painting practice is playful and experimentative and my approach layers and fuses bold vibrant color with contrasting stripes, pattern, collage and energetic mark-making. My work is visually diverse and my paintings and prints are process-based and intuitive toying with the dynamic interplay of these different elements. I use multiple layers and juxtaposed shapes to create a unique, unpredictable and eclectic experience for the viewer. I like to work through various mediums with particular emphasis on painting & printmaking.
