My paintings are populated with people, animals, plants, household objects and more which are all existing within the bounds of the painting, in a balanced and interactive world, with many narratives and stories. I paint on wood panel and sometimes smooth canvas. I paint in fairly thin layers using washes to create a sense of dimension, warmth and achieve subtle color shifts. I then varnish with oil based, glossy art varnish. The addition of this oil based varnish gives the acrylic a lustrous brilliance and also protects the paint. In addition to the paintings, I have fine art archival quality reproductions of some of the paintings.
