Since 2007, I've been primarily focused on a series of mixed media paintings combining acrylic paint with sharpie that I call Elaborate Doodles.

The first marks are applied with sharpie in a gestural method without me looking at the piece, then patterns are revealed in the spaces created by these first lines. Acrylic paint is applied in layers between the sharpie after letting the image seep into my brain so that colors present themselves to me. The artwork is turned periodically to open new areas of perception into the piece. Each layer is influenced by the previous layer as the piece is built up to its conclusion.

As these layers of line and color are combined, I begin to see ideas and stories in the patterns created, allowing me to extract the titles from each finished piece.

The work presented here shows some pieces that are still in the process of creation while others are in their final state.
