Acrylics and mixed media
I am a mixed-media artist with a focus on acrylic painting. Living in Gig Harbor, I’m inspired by the diverse landscapes and nature of the Pacific Northwest: moody seascapes and forests, vibrant flora and fauna, and those stunning sunrises and sunsets. Yet, I also struggle with comprehending how so much beauty coexists with despair. To make sense of the unexplainable, I find solace in creativity, be it through making art, music, or poetry. I create from an emotional place, and the tactile feeling of spreading paints and mediums with mark-making tools onto canvases is cathartic and joyful. You’ll find me using brushes, palette knives, my hands, and anything else that can blot, scrape, or spray. My aesthetic ranges from the abstract to impressionistic, varying from smooth and minimalist designs to complex layers and textures.
