Recently the biggest shift in my process is the use of digital images as a base layer. I take photographs then embed them with textures. By creating and printing my source material I have opened a new avenue of exploration to my art. By collecting, refining and combining these images, I now have an expanding visual language that results in paintings that are both representational and abstract.
I then paint on top of the images with mixed media adding or subtracting layers. My goal is to create a surface rich in detail and mystery, bursting with color and energy.
I pull inspiration from all areas of my life and I am thrilled by what can spark my imagination. Challenge and change are the words I use to describe my life and approach to my art practice.
I pull inspiration from every area of my life to continually push my art to evolve.
Challenge and change is the key to my art practice.
