Medium: Painting

Booth #: LN1C

The body of my work is comprised of mixed media paintings that have become increasingly less calculated and more responsive to the creative process. I begin with an idea or concept, but the painting ultimately takes on a life of its own. As I move backward and forward, building up and scraping back layers, drawing and painting with oils or acrylics on marble dust and gold leaf; layers emerge suggesting a sense of timelessness. Lyrical scrawls, gouges, deep scratches and repetitive mark making hint at nature, spirituality, and sensuality. Along the way, my ease with the media allows me to embrace serendipitous accidents in a true mixed media intuitively synchronized through a search for balance and harmony.
