My current body of work consists of varieties of expression, varying from realistic landscapes, to representational and abstracted paintings that occasionally connect loosely to what can be seen in our physical world today. Most of the pieces I have completed have used a method of pouring in order to create marble like textures across a canvas. Occasionally, I may go back into them with a brush and heavy body paint, making the slightest of additions. Some pieces have areas of the marble background voided out with a contrasting color. Occasionally these voids feather themselves back into the marbled surface. Others act as a setting for a narrative or landscape to be set into. Most recently, the free-flowing background of twirling colors has been used as a texture for images of models I have placed delicately on the canvas, voiding the negative space out with black.
