Painting and Mixed Media are natural progressions for me as a printmaker whose work is often tagged as “painterly”. In my Monotypes I chine collĂ© (or collage) preprinted Japanese papers into the work but I wanted more so I started painting and using mixed media a number of years ago. I like to work in the moment and not plan out the piece. I start sometimes with a drawing then paint into it adding things as I go. Random imagery from personal experiences and surroundings build up and often result in a sense of order in disorder. These layered compositions are created with a variety of media and techniques that often include found objects, graphite, acrylic, pencil crayon, photo transfers and collage.
