Mixed media, watercolor on canvas and aquaboard. I like to experiment with using traditional materials on nontraditional surfaces, creating textures and movement. Recent work uses multiple layering techniques to create mood and depth.

Artist Statement
I work primarily in Mixed media, and using watercolor on unconventional surfaces
such as canvas or Aquabord. I also paint in oils.

I have a language when I paint and the subject I choose is just a vessel for that
language. When I choose a subject I tend to focus on a series that subject,
painting it in subtly different ways. If it appears redundant it is because there are
many different ways I like to look at and approach things, each painting reflects a
different point of view both literally and figuratively. Recently I have been drawn
to subjects like tangled vines, with which I explore conflict, resilience, and
tenacity.
