The artist explains: "The paintings begin with preliminary sketches and are developed into the final piece intuitively. I have a background in woodcut printmaking and have applied various printmaking tools and techniques to my paintings. The paintings that were created on wood are carved into as if it were a woodcut block. I also used a brayer to apply the paint to the surface. The result is an image that is built up through a process of layering".
