Over the years, I have developed my passion for painting through continual learning and experimentation. Working with acrylic and mixed media, I begin by using pours and moving the color around on my paper. I will add layer upon layer of color, texture, and line. Weaving the patterns through the composition helps me determine if the artwork will become representational or purely abstract.
My inspiration comes from my fascination with the beauty in nature, such as reflected light on water, gnarly tree branches, and colorful mountainsides. The creative process of experimentation using different mediums and the ever-changing outcomes keep me engaged in the desire to produce interesting paintings that the viewer will also appreciate.
