Surface Paintings are mixed media compositions inspired by people from my photography and sketches. Through the use of color, shape, form, texture, faceless individuals and the figure, I try to suggest through and my interpretations ; love, faith, hope, despair, pain, sorrow and loneliness. The paintings are on glass or Plexiglass which causes a reflection of ourselves as we view the work. The paintings also explore drawing, and mixed media which are layered through color, form, line, and texture. The forms, which represent everyday people, are many times faceless representing the spirit of individuals and their surroundings and the interactions of those same individuals reflected at you the viewer.
