Artists are often asked about their process. Mine is dictated by the impetus of the medium. I make art in many media, predominantly 2D, allowing that decision to be directed the image I am producing. From 32' scroll oil paintings on gessoed paper to figure panels of torn paper on 4'-5' wooden panels, woodblock prints, small lush pastels, and large chiroscuro figure studies in black & white, I choose to keep my movement from one media to another as fluid as the subjects I am drawn to.
All work currently showing on my page are collages.
