Diptych, mixed media work on yupo paper 

Atmosphere and continuity are big themes in all of my work. For the Tidal series, I drew on a palette of earthy pigments, vaporous veils of color, and delicate markings to create a sense of the fragility and strength of the natural world. As in nature, elements in the paintings replicate, change, fade, and return over and over.

The yupo paper is indestructible, glassy, and vividly plastic. The paper has no absorbent quality, so the ink hovers and pools on the surface. The yupo has a sharpness to it — the ink stays bright, the pen marks can be razor-like, and the pencils and crayons almost crumble against the synthetic surface.
