Texture, pattern and light art the key elements in my paintings. By changing any of these factors a painting can be constantly evolving with little variation in the actual subject matter. The introduction of a specific texture or pattern can define the mood of the painting. Add light to the equation and a simple composition can have a lot of mileage for an artist.
Although I trained in drawing/painting, I also spent a year studying embroidery and weaving by integrating both disciplines my work can hopefully develop in many directions.
