“My process all begins with scavenging. I gather objects with interesting textures to create the foundations of my paintings. I adhere items such as windowpane fixtures, cheesecloth, yarn, plaster, articles of clothing, and wax to canvas, wood and manipulated furniture. This provides me a myriad of opportunities to alter these surfaces, as well as play with space and shape. I then paint compositions reflecting the organic forms of nature and landscape. I continue layering each piece with more found materials including wax, yarn, cheesecloth, plaster, wood, cotton, glass, paint, and other materials.
Utilizing these materials allows me to capture interesting textures, that are both man-made and naturally occurring in the world; both have stages of renewal and decay. Each of the materials possesses a unique identity that is altered, repurposed, and ultimately reborn upon the completion of my art. What most intrigues me are the visual effects that occur during these processes.”
