My Three Cents 30in x 30in Acrylic On Wrapped Canvas
I like to work with mixed media; it frees my imagination and provides endless opportunities for happy accidents that can lead to unpredictable outcomes. The challenge is knowing when to stop.
I have been lucky to be an artist for 20 years. I graduated from Emily Carr in 1991 and am still excited by where art leads me.
I enjoy challenging myself with techniques & styles. Trying new mediums and exploring ideas are a constant in my daily work.
This past year I have been exploring and incorporating vintage images into my work, taking something old and making it new helps to free my imagination and provide many opportunities to explore unknown territory.
I have always enjoyed the contrast between the freedom of abstract painting and the order and constraints of realism. This juxtaposition pushes me to explore the relationship between the two, using them to complement each other and experiment with design elements in my work.
