My latest series of work is titled Alliteration. These mixed media paintings employ sumi ink, paint, and some a mix of silver leaf or metallic bases. My past work has predominately explored color; building layers of opacity and translucence to explore subtleties and range of tone while creating layered, atmospheric spaces. These works will continue to explore those themes while incorporating the gestural marks inherent in the nature of the ink.
