To say I am self taught would be to imply that I've learned something... Improviser would be more accurate. Inspired by the walls, ghost signs, layers, redactions and textures of my photographs. My "painting" (I have recently started adding other media into the works on canvas) is mostly spontaneous. I am now more likely to get my art supplies from a hardware store than an artists supplies. I rarely use sketchbooks and mostly capture ideas as notes to maintain that spontaneity. I also work digitally and of late that has been focused on creating geometric abstract prints. In an ideal world the photography, digital work and mixed media will one day come together as something that is completely me.
