Portfolio of Available Work - Abstract, Collage & Figurative
ABSTRACT | My abstract paintings contain layers of mixed media including acrylic, powdered marble, charcoal, oil and cold wax. Various tools such as cement trowels, palette knives, paint rollers are used to achieve what I would call intentionally awkward beauty.
COLLAGE | My new collage is rich with found papers, vintage books, and photography that is layered and cut away. Integrating urban photography with a "pop" of color, I am loving this process
FIGURATIVE | My figurative work has an abstract emphasis as I repeat patterns and shapes, or smudge and draw over as the model changes poses. I take great joy in lots of toes and exaggerated elements of the human form.
so that's my portfolio! with a lot of gray paintings (my favorite color), black & white abstracts, red abstracts, collage with urban influence, and figure drawings in charcoal & pastel - from my studio in Santa Barbara, CA
