I am a multi-disciplinary artist that works in a variety of mediums using large forms and bold color. I prefer to paint in oils and acrylics and make various types of prints using my large etching press. My work is expressive and I use figures, birds and musical ideas as my subjects but also work abstractly. Much of what I make comes from memory as much as from imagination. I use a lot of layers to create interest with colors and textures. Sometimes the work is figurative but it could be based on musical principals which I interpret into visual art. My philosophy on how I work is about exploring new ideas and making them my own. I like the viewer to come up with their own thoughts on what they see. Then I am satisfied with the end result.
