"During the painting process I turn my paintings around to each side, so that it works, compositionally, from all four directions. I sign my paintings on the back as a statement to remove my ego from the work and let the owner of the painting decide how they want to display the work."
"Acrylic paint and canvas. Acrylic paint is so versatile, it can be watered down into a tint or built up tactilely, and it dries quickly so you don't have to wait hours for it to dry. And I love the durability, texture and tooth of canvas."
