MY STYLE

I use several mediums to create my art work.  I work with graphite pencils, charcoal, oil and soft pastels, acrylic paints, and digital art software.  Recently acrylics and digital art have been the mediums that I have used.  With acrylics I use different tools outside of the traditional paint brushes.  Sometimes I’ll use some common household items such as plastic wrap, bubble wrap, yarn, strings, chains, a rubber mallet, balloons, hair dryers.  I also change the make-up of the acrylic paints by adding more water to the medium, silicon oil, and fluid medium to keep it from drying.
