I paint as a form of expression and self discovery. Each mixed media work is a story within itself representing a journey, memory or a mood. No matter what I’m painting, it’s always relationships. Relationships of space, line, color and texture. How everything interacts together.
I get lost in the act of painting. The process is so engaging.
How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?
"I work in multiples so each piece informs the next. Adding and eliminating, shifting and restructuring elements until the moment a solution reveals itself. I use contrasting layers to activate the surface and reveal passages of time and history. The process is completely engaging, exhilarating, frustrating and rewarding."
"I'm inspired by exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail. Examples include; a chunk of turquoise, a maple leaf, phases of the moon. This also holds true for architecture, Interiors, jewelry, fashion... I appreciate it all!"
"I'm intrigued by the power of a small detail or single element to create a shift in the harmony, balance or tension of a composition. I use mark making as a language, large and small, to create that shift."
