Mixed media on board

24" x 23.75"




The drive to create my mixed media abstracts comes in part from the unlimited possibilities given the materials that I use and personal narratives that arise throughout the process. As I began using materials such as paper, plastic bags, cheesecloth, old basketballs, and acrylic paint I was noticing that the union of colors, textures, shapes, and forms were creating an energy on the canvas mimicking the energy around me and within me. And it started making sense to me; I am creating what I am experiencing. I was putting form to the unseen.
