Media and subjects: Acrylic, Mixed-Media, Photography
Why you joined MAA: To encourage myself to paint more and to connect with other artists.
Something fun about you: I like making things. I do a lot of do-it-yourself projects. I recently bought an old cargo van to convert to a camper van.
I started painting because I took a color theory class in college and realized I love working with acrylic paints. I like to build up layers of color and sometimes work in mixed media, painting on prints of photos I’ve taken. These days, I am interested in painting what I think of as psychological landscapes to try and reveal private but also universal moments when the self sees itself as part of the cosmos. I have collected photos of sunrises and sunsets and am working out how to paint them. If you live in the area, you will likely see me walking my dog Bo around Kensington and taking photos at sunrise. I look forward to connecting with others over the years.
