Primarily a painter, I have also worked in printmaking,sculpture and installation. My recent paintings are mixed media collages on panel: found images, acrylic and ink layers, rice paper, beeswax, oils, alkyds. The surfaces are varied and textural. Some images are scratched into the wax as in intaglio printmaking; others are buried under many layers of media or float on top.
I tend to work on many pieces at the same time, completing a set of paintings over a year or so. Drawings happen as part of the process, and also come together often as a series of images I might hang together as one piece. I sometimes make objects out of found things; other times I might sculpt a form out of clay just so I can hold it in my hands, turn it around, see it from all angles.
