ABOUT THE ART
I typically do not use a paintbrush. I pour my paint; tilting and swaying the paint around on the canvas. Every painting is a unique collaboration of colour, chemistry, and composition in the moment. I love the spontaneity of action painting. My pieces are made with acrylics, a variety of paint mediums, and a concoction of household products. I also use a kitchen torch. For some pieces, I incorporate gold, rose gold, and silver leaf. I always draw my colour schemes and inspiration from nature such as a tropical ocean’s coral sea, a snowy BC mountain landscape, a swirling storm on Jupiter, or a peacock’s feather.
