      What’s your medium? Generally large-scale abstract acrylic paintings on panel and delicate gestural works on paper in acrylic ink.

      What are some new pieces we can find at your studio during this year’s Crawl? Along with new subtly layered atmospheric landscape paintings, paperwork inspired by mountain ranges, wind, the west coast and classical music, I will also have some pieces on hand from my recent artist residency in Iceland (June 2016), including some photo-based work. This will be my first time showing my photo work!
