From the artist: "My landscapes and still-life works are impressionistic or abstracts created with palette knife and other mixed-media. I also create quirky animal art with a sense of playfulness and innocence. I work primarily in acrylics using various texture mediums like modeling paste and crackle. My art often includes found paper such as maps, book paper, music sheets. Some paintings also have small objects attached such as shells, rocks, and buttons."
