My artistic interests are always changing as I like to explore with traditional oil painting, acrylic, and mixed media techniques. My abstract paintings are expressive, emotive, personal, and passionate. For me, the way that I approach the way I work comes from a place of complete freedom and experimentation. There is not any advance pre-planning of the composition. I am an active painter, meaning I lay the framed canvas on the floor and am constantly moving around it, working from each side and angle until the painting feels resolved. Working this way allows me to interact completely with the painting. I apply layers of translucent and opaque paint with my hands, brushes, and pours to create different dimensions in my painting. The viewers are invited to join in my expedition as I discover and portray my relationship with the connection of color and feeling.
