I am primarily an abstract figurative artist. I use mixed media (including acrylics, oils, soft pastels, oil sticks, charcoal, water colours, and gouache) to explore both the physical environment I am seeing, and an emotion I am feeling. I do this by intuitively making a mark and responding to that mark. My paintings are loose and experimental, inspired by open studio life drawing sessions and my experiences in the natural environment. These experiences are later realized on canvas, board, water colour paper, Yupo, Mylar, or Terraskin.
