What I Do/What I Use

I create traditional paintings, photographs, drawings, collages, assemblages, and contemporary mixed media images including multi-layered traditional media/hybrid pieces compiled within a digital platform. My favorite subjects are faces, music, and visual manifestations of human emotions. I create patterns and abstract art and also explore the world of macrophotography.

Tools/Media: acrylic paint, watercolors, pigments, markers, ink, pencils, clay, repurposed paper, cardboard, pastels, thread, flatbed scanner, DSLR cameras, Lensbaby Composer, macro lenses, and various digital painting/editing programs (Photoshop Elements, Affinity Photo, Amadine, Pixelmator Pro, Image Tricks Lite, Vectornator, Oxidizer, GIMP, etc.).
