I paint mainly in acrylics, on canvas, wood and masonite. I also use layers of clear epoxy resin in between layers of acrylics to create nebula paintings with physical depth.
“It’s A Small World” Painting Series 2016

“Heavenly Body” Collaboration Series with Heather Thornton, 2015-2016
In this body of work, I collaborate with artist Heather Thornton to combine our similarities and differences to create works celebrating the figure as well as the mystery of outer space. She paints the figures, and I paint the environment they reside in.
“Interspatial” Painting Series 2011-2015
