I primarily work in oil and acrylic but have recently been
incorporating paper into my paintings. Applying paper to my paintings
give them more depth and interest. I may tear the paper, giving the
piece an organic feel or cut the paper creating a block print effect.

In the future, I look forward to challenging myself and my creativity by
introducing bold marks, graffiti and scribbles.  I believe these strokes would
create a dramatic layer of space that will give the paintings even more depth
and interest.  This will allow me to step out of my traditional comfort zone and
what I think a painting should be and allow me to open up my creativity.

I look forward to the future by loosening up my brush and growing my
portfolio even more, taking my painting to a whole new level.
