Paintings & Drawings

I’ve always liked to work with watercolor and acrylic paint, but also love getting dirty with chalk-pastels. I have just a few examples of some pieces I’ve done. Unfortunately, many pieces were completed and given away without ever being photographed… shame on me!

In 2013 I started experimenting more with texture. It occurred to me that latex painters caulk might be an interesting medium to work with – and it was! What an interesting use for a common material – check out “Night Tree” as an example.
