Painting


Impasto is a technique used in painting, where paint is laid on an area of the surface very thickly, usually thick enough that the painting-knife strokes are visible. This gives the painting a texture and depth that adds life to each piece. This technique combines her love of tactile materials and painting. Each stoke laid is like a building block in creating a unique piece of art. She rarely uses paint brushes when creating her impasto paintings, they are mainly done using pallet knives.
