When I make abstract mixed media paintings, I allow my materials and process to lead me. I discover new color combinations or the interplay of paint over line or paper, working intuitively without a plan or sketch of the final painting. I build a painting with layers, recording a history of my process. I work with acrylic paint, mark-making tools such as graphite, charcoal, marker or paper that I paint myself, buy or find in magazines or junk mail.
I have another body of mixed media figurative work that I often work on concurrently with my abstract work. I use a reference photo for these works as a guide for placement of highlights and shadows, which I choose to follow, change, or leave out. As I bring abstract elements into these paintings, they straddle the abstract world and the real.
