As a mixed-media artist; I work with anything I can- paint, collage, encaustic, gold-leaf, photography, gel transfer, plaster, stains, wax, dirt, fabric, found objects, and other various media. Another consistent element in my work is repetitive imagery; Ferris wheels, images from nature, lines, and other things both, at once, strange and familiar. Rather than find myself married to any particular element, I tend to work intuitively, allowing the creative process to control the direction a piece might take. When creating art, my creative process is much akin to layers of sediment building up upon a riverbed; layer after layer is added until a final piece is revealed-
I find comfort in beginning with something I know while traveling to someplace unknown.
