Acrylic/Mixed Media Paintings
Growing up in a family of artists I have been looking at and making art since I can remember. My maternal grandmother was especially influential in introducing me to mixed media and sparked my interest in combining materials. She taught me to see the creative possibilities in everything.
My work is about storytelling. I use drawing and mixed materials to develop narratives. I begin with a basic idea and, combining texture, line, color, pattern and figures, the story grows as I build and develop it on the canvas. With the title in place I encourage the viewer to participate and expand on the idea in a way that is meaningful to them.
