Taking cues from the natural world, I create work that’s familiar to both the eye and the heart. These visual notes, rich with texture, trigger a memory fluttering at the edges and just out of reach.
Working primarily in oils and mixed media, I incorporate cold wax as a medium in my paint. I enjoy the tactile quality it lends the finished work. Depending on the way it’s applied or handled in the final stages it can resemble polished stone, earth or crumbling artifacts. I work in multiple layers and may completely erase what was laid down before by newly introduced marks. I use pallet knives, putty knives, and brushes to lay down and scrape away surface information.
