Art and travel are two sides of the same coin for me. My artworks reflect the places that I travel to as an artist-in-residence around the world. It's always about curiosity, exploration and discovery, going into the unknown. Each place impacts my creative process profoundly and subsequently affects the works that I do.
I mostly paint in acrylic and mixed media, and I also adore printmaking (photopolymer etching in particular). I spent many years painting in encaustic and oil paint, but have returned to my first love of painting in acrylic - the perfect medium for traveling, teaching, and simplicity of use!
I also love printmaking - specifically solar plate etchings and carborundum prints, and often explain the process to visitors. And I have experimented in hand painted animations which I’m captivated by, despite the laborious and time consuming process.
During the 2022 Open Studios Tour, I will be doing painting demos throughout each day that I am open (first 2 weekends). I hope you will join me to see my process.
