I enjoy discovering traditional painting techniques, making my own paints and plasters, and applying patinas to metal. Eventually, I began to work with Venetian plaster, both the traditional lime-based formulations as well as the newer synthetics, and was intrigued by the variety of effects I could create. My paintings, done on lightweight wood panels, consist of multiple layers of pigmented plaster that are rubbed back, or sanded to reveal the underlying layers. Burnishing and various concoctions change the qualities of the surface with respect to sheen, translucence, and color intensity. Often metal leaf, paper, or other compatible materials are added in to provide an opportunity to excavate.
