My paintings contain multiple layers of paper collage and acrylic or oil paint applied in thin glazes. I use two finishes for my work: epoxy resin that encases the mixed media work in an impermeable, protective finish and gives the work a dreamlike quality, or I use an archival, matte re-touch varnish which seals the work, but allows for more of the textures to come through, giving the work an "earthy" feel. All my work is created on cradled masonite panels that are resistant to warping and stand off the surrounding surface, making the painting “pop.”

Seeing me demonstrate my techniques in person is the the best way to fully understand my work.
