Textured Landscapes


The textured landscapes are a combination of techniques and media. The paintings are comprised of abstract textures and materials combined in an arrangement that becomes a realistic landscape when viewed from a distance. Close up, it is a seemingly random series of paint, media, and patterns. This is not simply thick paint.

The media contains specific aggregates to achieve unique textural, dimensional, and reflective effects. The materials used include marble dust, volcanic aggregates, polymer emulsions and acrylic paint combined to achieve special effects. My background in chemistry and science inspires my experimental approach to art.
