Visual Arts: Glasswork, Jewelry, Mixed Media, Painting, Works on paper
“I use traditional painting and drawing techniques combined with personal mark-making to create abstract and expressive paintings in encaustic, oil and cold wax, enamel glass on copper, graphite, or kiln fired glass. I enjoy challenging the rules, the materials, and the processes. I experiment with a variety of non-traditional tools while adding and subtracting pigments, paper, oil stick, graphite, and pan pastel. I think of my process as ‘making a painting’ rather than painting. The process is not unlike a Visual Jazz in that each stroke elicits the next as layer after layer is applied to, or taken away from, a substrate until the painting reveals itself.”
