My Process

When I first started painting with acrylics I enjoyed experimenting with layers of glaze while painting with my fingers to allow for loss of control, colour exploration and lots of texture. When I got tired of messy hands I moved on to a palette knife. Then I combined palette knife with dry brush application. Lastly, I worked colours together with dry brush and multiple layers. My process is free flowing. 

In stark contrast with watercolours, I use markers to get sharp lines and detail work in my minimalist black and white designs with a pop of watercolour on paper. I revel in seeing the colours bleed into each other.

 My sculpture work is organic forms. Sometimes I work from an initial drawing. I sculpt in cardboard, using glue or tape to form shape. As the shape forms it often changes with lovely three dimensional surprises. I papier Mache or shellac and finish with paint or textured finish.
