Sustainability is an important aspect of my work. I choose to repurpose a variety of wood panels into paintings. I gather materials such as floor samples, shelves, reclaimed wood and more through friends and businesses. I reshape, sand, saw, and gesso multiple layers before I even begin a painting.
Because of the deep connection I feel with our planet, I enjoy the rawness of wood as a canvas. My painting process emphasizes care for the planet and the joy of its gifts. Additionally, I love exploring colors and compositions to convey internalized motivation that accomplishes a vision beyond the imitation of sense perception.
