Oil Paintings (2017-Present)

I had never really painted much before making these. I started painting them because I needed a creative release from my creative practice, and I find the act of just moving a brush with paint on it, therapeutic. In these I explored different ways of mark-making, including using objects that were not brushes, as well as making my own painting instruments. Recently I have started to explore coloring the canvas that will eventually be painted on.

One of them I scanned into my computer and created a repeat pattern from it, that I later had digitally printed on fabric (scroll down).
