My artwork has always been, or for at least the last 12 years or so, been about experimentation with untraditional methods of painting and drawing. I’m influenced and inspired by everything around me, especially nature and color. Color and texture play a huge role in my work. I work with several different types of media, and love to experiment with “nontraditional” ways of layering and laying down the paint. In the end, whatever it is that I’m working on has to be about getting the colors and texture right, and creating an overall balanced feel throughout the piece.
