Welcome to my Studio!

I’m a mixed media artist and writer, based in southern California.

You are welcome to click through the sections below to view my works on paper, wood panel, and canvas. I hope you find some joy or inspiration from my interpretations of the world.

I am interested in how medium interacts with substrate, how color is affected by light and shadow, and how different tools I use can create interesting marks and expressive textures.

Works on Paper

I work in acrylic inks, fluid acrylics, charcoal, graphite, water color, gouache, neo colors, crayon, colored pencils, and collage.

Works on Panel

Working on wood panel allows me to scratch through the surface, build up layers, and add texture to a piece. Here I add different mediums to create interesting contrasts.

Works on Canvas

On canvas, I start with a layer of gesso, or paint over layers of paint that I may not like. This creates a history for the piece. I enjoy using a reductive method, and keep working until I’ve found a good stopping point.
