f r e q u e n t l y   a s k e d   q u e s t i o n s

What type of paper do you use?  I use Canson's Multimedia (18x24in) and Bristol (14x17in) papers. I also use a fantastic, heavy, drawing paper from Blick.

Which type of paint do you use?  I use Blick Studio acrylic paints primarily, but also use other brands (Liquitex, Artist's Loft -Studio, and Golden).

How do you apply paint?  I used squares of dense foam, brushes, palette knives, and bare hands (my fave!)

How do you frame your work?  Typically, my works on paper and canvas are sold unframed; it makes storing my work easier and it makes the shipping cost to the collector far less expensive (with in the US). Also, I think it is better to leave frame/mat selection up to the collector so that the piece will be harmonious in their space. 

Do you offer workshops or tutorials?  Unfortunately, I don't. But you can check out my process via reels on IG.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?  Nature is a huge inspiration, especially following a hike. Attending any live, performing art event is also very inspiring.

Composition, do you plan ahead or is it intuitive?  I'd say 98% of the time, my works completely organic and intuitive. There are times when I get a flash of color or a hint composition...but it often changes during the process.

Who are some of your favorite artists?  Definitely De Kooning, Mitchell, Deibenkorn, Sargent, Van Gogh, Richter, Twombly, to name a few.

Do you listen to music while painting?  When I was in my soft pastel era, I used to listen to both Latin jazz and Latin rap. Now, I listen to music maybe 50% of the time and it is typically jazz, classical or ambient.
