I am an abstract painter who finds incredible beauty in objects and surfaces that are often overlooked. My work is a tactile reflection of mood, memory, and environment. I apply color in contrasting layers using a variety of acrylic mediums and gels. Portions of each layer are often reduced; establishing interplay with the underlying colors and textures. This creates a depth that invites viewers to examine the work up-close, while maintaining a complete and engaging abstract composition.
