About the Artist

I don’t like to start with a blank canvas so I use a digital image which I create on a laptop computer using 6 software programs, an Intous electronic table and stylus and a 44-inch Epson archival pigment inkjet printer.  I print the image on special matte canvas at plus 50% inkflow, which gives me a very color intensive image with which to begin.

While the print is still wet, I draw on it by dripping bright acrylic paints with a sharp stick on the image, finding small images within the larger areas.  I enhance these special areas with Posca paint pens, solid oil paint bars and stencils.

I seal the piece with 6 coats of high gloss acrylic varnish.

My process is from the inside out- meaning I am not trying to re-create something I am seeing (like a landscape), but something from my imagination which occurs as the work comes together.
