My work has evolved from abstract intuitive painting to include mixed media that creates depth, history and texture. Color, patterns, images and typography play a large role in my work. I incorporate handmade textiles and papers to create my signature collage technique. My process is still intuitive, with themes of current social issues, historical influence, and even pop culture making its way into my work.
My process is very serendipitous. I start with sketching and mark-making on canvas or paper, then I move to collaging and painting. This goes back and forth until a history of layers and texture are built up. I also experiment with a variety of tools, mediums and techniques as I work. The process continues until the final composition comes together.
