I have been painting for a number of years and over time I have gravitated to mostly using acrylics, collage and different drawing materials such as oil pastels in my work which I find allows me greater flexibility to create something unique. I love pattern and line and bold color and composing my work using a flat picture plan. Playing with abstraction and different materials allows me to keep the “fun” in painting.
I enjoy the process of creating and can get lost in it for hours. I love it when people stop and become intrigued by something in a painting whether it is the pattern, texture, content, the painting name or the story behind it. I also like injecting a little whimsy or humour into a painting and think it is great when it makes someone laugh.
