I’m a visual Artist who paints abstractions with the occasional Pop Art flavor.
I started my adventure into painting when my Mother passed away in 2002. I needed a way to heal and the act of painting helped fill the void. Creating art became the only emotional coping mechanism I relied on at that time. Now, painting is more about the process of making art. A process that is still introspective and healing, but also creates a headspace where I love what I'm doing so much that I loose track of time and I feel at peace.
When making a painting I use many layers and 7 different techniques. A painting might be complete after only two or three layers; other times, a painting can take over a hundred layers to complete. The 7 different painting techniques allow me the flexibility I need to shift my approach as a painting develops into a finished piece.
Here’s the list of my 7 techniques: 1.) Brushwork 2.) Dripping 3.) Stencils 4.) Spray Paint 5.) Alcohol Mix 6.) Paint Pens 7.) Pallet Knife
Every layer is the background until the final layer is applied and dry.
