Full Artist's statement
My work is largely mixed media including acrylic, collage, oil, and various drawing tools. I develop each piece in layers starting with acrylic and adding various media as the piece unfolds. I like to build upon each layer and dig, rub, or wipe to expose the richness underneath. All pieces combine my love of painting and drawing and incorporate a strong marriage of the two. I have worked in both oil and acrylic, representation and abstract styles. I received a BFA focused on painting and drawing and have studied with many of the fine teachers at the Art League in Alexandria, VA.
