Colors and textures
My sketchbook is always close by and these sketches become the starting point as I begin a painting. I build up layers of paint to create a textured surface. Working in a cheerful palette expressing positivity and a celebration of color, I begin to see interesting areas of composition. The process becomes intuitive, creating a painting that is visually engaging and uplifting to the mind and spirit.
