Mixed Media, Booth 109

Marrying the immediateness of photography and gestural expressions of paint, I create compositions that leverage shape, colour, texture, form, and space.  For the last 12 years I have experimented with an integrative technique using acrylic mediums and digitally altered photography. The dichotomy of the pieces is evident, although the demarcation of elements is oftentimes more discreet. Traditionally a painter, photography now plays an essential role in my process. The use of photography allows pure emotions of the subjects to shine through. Oftentimes my artwork confronts sociocultural issues where I establish narratives that awaken my human spirit and advocate for social consciousness.
