Hope Rises with Every Dawn, mixed media, 60x72 inches
My work is a series of large scale illustrative narratives on a particular theme. My palette is generally bright for maximum impact, and I mostly use acrylic paint. At times, I introduce multimedia and apply plaster for extra texture. I frequently enhance my images with thick gold and silver paint. As a writer and avid reader, I draw on literature and poetry to inform my work, and I write extracts directly onto the canvas. These extracts support my visual stories. I also use thoughts and poetry of my own.
