I collaborate with the natural tendencies paint has to flow, layer, crack, and peel. I primarily experiment with natural binders like egg, casein, various oils, and animal glues; however, recently, I have begun to also investigate clear acrylic mediums. I enjoy sourcing and preparing my own colors as well. Handmade paints cultivate unpredictability in the paint layers, leading my compositions in spontaneous directions that embrace the transformation inevitable in all material things. Throughout my studio art career I have focused on an acceptance of change, ever preoccupied by the fleetingness of time.
