I paint on plywood because canvas will not hold up to the wet techniques and resin that I use. One day I bought some new birch plywood, and when I prepared to prime a particularly fabulous piece, I realized that the grain of the wood was too lovely to ignore. That lovely piece of birch has lead me to experiment with different woods and using the grain as part of the composition.  

Alchemy, my latest series, is made using chemical reactions to manipulate the media rather than a brush.
