Since taking a color theory class a few years back I have been fascinated by how colors play off each other, how light and dark brings important ingredients to the recipe. Approaching a subject in an abstract way I find myself focusing more on these elements than on the subject I am painting. I am enjoying the process and where it will take me. Using simple shapes bring structure to the composition. I’m exploring and experimenting with new ways of mark making. I’ve been working in acrylic with a focus on the forest as a theme.
