I use acrylic paint, collage materials and charcoal to make mixed media artworks that blend drawing and painting techniques together. The work is hopefully somewhat awkward and disjointed as materials and image fight for importance. Confident passages mix with floundering tries creating a work desperate to find new ways to express ideas and emotions.
My art making is grounded in searching, finding and getting lost, as I rarely begin with a specific image in mind. The making of each piece becomes like a small hard-fought battle or a journey to an unknown destination. I search for something that challenges me artistically and resonates honestly with my own life and heart.
