New Works

Updated 8/27/2021

“In my deeply textured mixed media pieces I built up and cut through up to 25 layers of a variety of mediums including cold wax, pastels, pigment sticks, papers, fabrics, stamps, moss, and random writings. Several of the paintings have iridescent foundations and copper backgrounds which catch the light, a rich effect that is very difficult to capture with a photo.

In both mixed media and traditional oil, I have continued my emphasis on vibrant color and strong mood in an abstracted and expressionistic style. I am grateful for the opportunity to share the unexpected, powerful, and numinous moments that add beauty and inspiration to my life.”
