These paintings incorporate the use of painted or found papers along with acrylic paint.
I prepare my own papers by painting or stamping patterns. I also look for papers with interesting designs or surfaces, as well as clippings from books, magazines, etc. I then paint and arrange the various papers to form an interesting arrangement of colours and textures.
An assortment of paintings, from representational to stylized and semi-abstract, using a variety of mediums and techniques.
