My creative process is exploratory in nature, influenced by mood, surroundings, travels and life events. I rarely start with an image in mind. Layers of underpainting reveal what the next step will be. Art is a safe place for me to take risks and make mistakes that lead to new pathways of understanding. I work on several pieces simultaneously, which allows me to act on impulsive ideas balanced by time for contemplation.
I work primarily in acrylic paint but also love to combine other mediums such such as ink, pencil, pastels and collage. I dabble between larger works on handcrafted wood panels and works on paper. The variety challenges me and also gives me a chance to continue exploring and enjoying every phase of the creative journey. Textural surfaces, intuitive marks and saturated colors are my signature elements.
