I approach most of my paintings intuitively, meaning, I don't have an end goal in mind. I layer my canvas or paper with acrylic paints, collage (papers, acrylic skins), inks, charcoal, colored pencils, and crayon (water-soluble, oil pastel, wax). I do this until I see something I like (a color or line), and then I add more of it. I repeat with something else I like. Over time, the painting is slowly revealed.
I enjoy the juxtaposition of neatness (in color or line) with more quietly messy areas. I want to the viewer to catch tiny glimpses at the layers underneath, and wonder about the painting that was there before.
