My paintings begin with layers of
acrylic washes in varying opacities
usually within predetermined shapes.

Multiple overlays build assorted
visual textures and patterns.

I use a variety of different methods
to establish these dimensional
qualities and visual compositions
on a two dimensional surface.

"Pieces of a Dream" Acrylic on canvas

"Guarded Secrets" Mixed Media Collage

In my collages I often employ
portions of my painted canvases
and manipulate them
while adding my handmade
clay trinkets and other found
or recycled objects to form
three dimensional statements.

It is my hope that you are stimulated by the design and visual experience
