My current focus is on exploring and discovering the many qualities of acrylic paint. This creates a healthy opportunity for risk-taking and encourages me to be spontaneous and to have fun when creating my work.
I seek to convey energy and movement when laying down the paint. Sanding down the many thick layers creates a surface that's smooth to the touch but appears visually as an unpredictable rough texture.
I'll respond to what's emerged and create balance by adding line drawings, by enhancing what has appeared, or sometimes turning the entire piece into one recognizable image. The end result is lively, detailed, colorful, and sometimes quite whimsical.
