Tinley Park, IL
I do a pencil drawing on canvas then an underpainting. I then work with several transparent layers of acrylic paint until I achieve the desired color balance.

Acrylics, inks, gouache, modeling pastes, sand and more, on canvas / paper. I use anything water based, in my secret mixtures / potions, to paint my joy of life expressionism rendering of landscapes.
My acrylic paintings incorporate added textured gel mediums and various painting surfaces to create dimensional effects within the scene, giving the viewer a sense of involvement.
I use plaster, graphite powder, and thin washes, to develop tones and textures.I am drawn to simpler cultures and art influences because of the simple and direct manner in which they express form.
I create acrylic paintings on canvas using a multi-layer process. I use my smooth blending technique to create a soft, yet bold look with my vivid colors rolling off a soft bristle brush.

I create free-hand textured paintings by piping acrylic paints in the style of henna body art on canvas. I paint intuitively and the symmetry comes from a meditative practice of organic repetition.
