In the Studio

 

Here's a sneak peek into my studio and painting procedure! Building layers on top of layers of paint, experimenting with different surfaces and painting materials and letting my intuition guide me.

 

My paintings are characterized by vivid colors, energetic lines and a rich background. This is achieved by using non traditional tools when painting such as my hands, old credit cards, brayers, toothbrushes, sponges, stencils, toothpicks, bubble wrap. I spray water on wet paint, drip, splatter, sprinkle and turn the canvas upside down to create a textured surface. My works change constantly from the beginning until the final piece, emerging in unexpected ways.

 

I hope you enjoy the glimspe into my messy, colorful world!
