Paint is a material imbued with magic and alchemical possibilities. Over the years I have experimented with many different materials, using both acrylic and oil based paints in my artworks. For the past 15 years I've primarily used oil paints in my works on canvas. I appreciate working into the paint in the many different stages of its drying, and the possibilities of reworking areas that oil paint provides. Ultimately the tools I use as a painter serve in the function of revealing light in the paintings.
