Mixed Media Paintings
“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”
– HENRY WARD BEECHER
In my work I am most responsive to the natural world. Finding in it complex textures and earthen hues, the mood for my own canvasses. I prefer abstract color fields choosing to evoke an impression or feeling from the viewer. Found objects, collage papers, rocks, metal and most recent the use of photographs, are revealed within my mixed media pieces.
My love of texture along with simplicity are founded on the principles of Asian style and eastern philosophy, blended with the influence of Mark Rothko and Anselm Keifer, two of my favorite artists.
