acrylic on canvas

Here is an excerpt from a recent interview for The Journal about my painting process:
The acrylics all came from a desire to be free, to approach the canvas with no preconceived notion of what I was going to make [...] Thinking of our drying planet and the “single use” garbage polluting our waterways and our land I decided to allow layers of paint to dehydrate under various scraps that would usually be tossed in the garbage or recycling bin […] I peel off the scraps and repeat the process until the composition feels fairly balanced, then I go in with brushes, palate knives, pottery tools and paint markers to add depth, definition, and color.
