My recent work is made from birch plywood & tinted polyurethane. I study the shapes made by the wood grain and apply multiple levels of color, using negative space to create an abstract pattern.
These paintings are a statement of what is important to me…NATURE. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by and drawn to trees. This work explores the inner life; the history the wood grain reflects. I enjoy using those natural patterns to draw out the story each piece of wood holds.
