My work is an exploration of material, color and texture. Complex Surfaces are created by additive and subtractive processes. Layered applications of paints plus whatever else is available followed by partial reductions reveal exciting new and unexpected surfaces. This process mimics nature’s life cycles. As time passes the new or young evolves surviving life’s challenges to become more beautiful and knowledgeable with age. I work with material, paint, thread, clay, metal, styrofoam, plexiglass, plus many types of abandoned objects and discards. Nature is found everywhere both in the heavily forested mountain areas to gritty urban settings and I am inspired by both. I hope you enjoy taking a close up look at my work and letting the story reveal itself to you!
