Painting · Paper
I consider my work thought constructions —observing the isolated moment, singular shapes and bold lines, and the defining visual that swings. What I make has to move me in some way and then I want to move you.
My image anchors are based on landscape, architecture, and other forms in the natural world, and from that they evolve into thought conversations and constructions. Sometimes the paintings or collages come from what I see in local surroundings—many times they are from my travels or hikes throughout the U.S. or other countries. Sometimes they are sheer internal expressionism. My aim is to communicate a meaningful visual story. I embrace the creation of beauty for the sake of it.
I experiment with materials. I almost exclusively work with oil paint, however, I started using Venetian plaster on the canvas in some paintings about 8 years ago as another texture dimension. I deliberately use it within my composition armature. I also make monotypes, paper cutouts or collage, and mixed media work. Many times I mix medias by using paint, paper and other juicy materials.
