Mixed media collage tends to be my go to style for personal work in my sketchbook (especially my sketchbook covers). Combining drawing, watercolor + acrylic painting, collage, image transfers, stamping and hand-lettering to create a cohesive piece allows me the freedom to try new techniques and appreciate the uninterrupted flow of not worrying about where the piece is headed. My writing background (I have a Master's Degree in English) comes out in these personal sketchbook excerpts where I juxtapose words and quotes amid color, image and pattern.
