Beginning in mid-2017, I started playing around with the idea of using resin with my artwork. I would either use the resin to accent the painting, or to create layered paintings.
To make the layered paintings, I poured a thin layer of resin and then painted on the resin once it had cured. I would then repeat this process until the painting was done.
From 2016 until now I've continued to work in mostly gouache, colored pencil, and acrylic on wood. In 2016 I began doing more and larger cutouts (by hand, using a jigsaw and a lot of patience). During these years I began travelling farther and more often for art festivals and conventions. In 2017 I started experimenting with layered acrylic resin paintings, which will likely become their own separate body of work in the future. I also had the bad habit of not scanning finished work before it sold due to my busy schedule. During this time, I have completed The Skullgarden Coloring Book, The Seeker's Lenormand, and the 100 Skulls book.
From 2012 to 2015 I created and explored the theme of "skullgarden". I worked mostly in acrylic and colored pencil, with some ink on hotpress Arches paper and oil paints on occasion. During this time, I defined my current modus operandi as far as technique and subject matter goes. I did more paintings in 2014 than I ever have (and probably ever will) if you include finishing The Wooden Tarot. Unfortunately I did not have the means to scan or photograph quite a lot of pieces from 2012 to early 2013, so some things are missing. During this time I had three solo exhibitions, a few more group shows, and completed both The Wooden Tarot and Earthbound Oracle.
