As a mixed media painter I carry a strong belief that art should evoke a powerful response, with feelings deeply personal to each viewer. The organic movement of paint within water allows me to work with little preconceptions, letting the medium decide much of its own path. Within this body of work I explore the connection between the physical and that which we can not see. I aim to create a complex, emotional landscape by building layer upon layer; dipping, soaking, and drenching the canvas after each application of paint until images emerge. Final details are created with charcoal, oil pen, and other mixed media.
