Paint, Print, Stencil, Spray

I love working on these mixed media pieces. I work on birch plywood panels so I can spray paint, sand, drip, rotate, stamp, collage to my hearts content. I pull out all the materials sometime collaging book pages first then painting patterns and background and dive into the subject mater with large stencils that I cut from acetate with a heat pen. Most of these paintings are inspired by a word or phrase. I doodle around in my sketchbook for a few days or even weeks before I start but once I start painting the work goes fast as I layer images and patterns on top of each other for depth and meaning. Make sure you look twice to see what is hiding in the layers behind.

Some of these paintings and more like them are available for purchase – contact me to find out what’s available and how….you can also commission a piece.
