Experimenting with art from an early age, I have been a
multimedia artist working with
various materials for most of my life. However, due to an
un-yielding passion I intentionally continue to work in contrast with
progress struggling to preserve the
use of traditional methods and materials when painting art.
While following modern methods using both old and new
materials, it had become aware to me through my own
struggles to locate valid information that some ancient painting
processes deserving of more reverence and if not
collectively publicized may become driven to
extinction. It is my belief that these resources should
remain available to anyone (including those of limited
means) with sincere interest in creating art.
