For me the landscape is the most accessible subject of the natural world. In response to landscape compositions I layer thick and thin applications of acrylic paint using knives, rollers, rags, and brushes. My interest is not in recreating the scene but rather in learning from its aesthetic. I emphasize bright colors, areas of contrast, and patterns in mark making.
I am passionate about art being accessible. No matter where you are on your creative journey, my goal is to guide you in discovering your own vision. We all make bad paintings, that is part of the learning process. It is important to me to try and remove barriers and intimidation that prevents us from exploring what is possible.
