The majority of my work, like life, is textured. Some are blatantly 3D and electrified, while others are subtle and layered. Some works are informed by social and economic issues with backstories that might be controversial and provoking. Other works explore emotions and ideas provoked by color, form and texture.
My mediums mostly cycle through acrylic, latex, enamel, and spray paint. The works are enhanced with pigmented resins, LEDs, films, decoupage, and inks which are built upon on canvas, board, paper, mesh, and fabric structures. Mediums are flowed, brushed, dripped, spread, flung, heated, cooled, burnt, soldered, and spun until they coalesce in harmonic disharmony.
Loosely categorized as abstractly representational with enough imagery to help the viewer understand the bigger picture after they recognize the backstory.
