Area of Operation: Aurora, CO

I am a Colorado contemporary mixed media painter. My abstract work is full of vibrant color and unusual textures. I like to use metals, metal foils, and metal leaf in my work. My process involves applying layers of color and texture to create an intricate and complex statement. The textural element of my work is important to me. I work on panel and canvas. I invite the viewer to use not only their visual sense, but also their tactile sense to experience my paintings. I love meeting artists and sharing my techniques and perspective on mixed media painting. I have been teaching mixed media workshops around the country since 2008.
