I work primarily with pastels, oil, and acrylic paint on surfaces such
as wood, canvas, paper or directly onto a wall. The paintings range from large-scale expressive work to smaller heavily textured pieces. Interested in the physical qualities of paint and how it behaves, I
play with colour, layering, and mediums. My work often has haptic brush marks that show the performative act involved in creating large work. I am interested in how life-size artworks can transform a space and affect the viewer on an emotional psychological level.
