My paintings are composed using an intuitive process of layering and excavating. I arrange vivid hues alongside subtle tones, or rich and opaque passages with translucent glazes.  These elements overlap, intertwine, and accentuate each other.

 

As the piece evolves I grind into the layers with a power sander, revealing new textures, early brushstrokes and stunning color “conversations”, which tell the painting’s story of it’s making.

 

Every painting orchestrates the elements of imagery- hue, contrast, space, texture, and contour into an immersive optical experience in the final piece.
