“Tidal Drift” is one of my most vibrant pieces yet. I worked in layers to create a sense of looking down into a colorful tide pool. Using layers of resin for the bottom, I built on that with a flow technique of alcohol ink on top of that. Then I covered that layer with a slightly blue layer of resin and soft hints of rippled white waves on the topmost layer. This piece is more eye-catching in my studio than any piece I have ever made. The ocean greens and blues really pop with the glimmers of metallics and warmer hues.

What is Resin?

Resin is like a liquid glass. It is a two-part epoxy that once mixed, starts to harden within the hour.

I mix resin with various pigments and then work with a blowtorch and knife to paint these scenes.

Some paintings have up to 5 layers of resin, each taking 72 hours to fully cure. You can see through the layers like looking through glass or water. Once cured, it is brilliantly shiny like glass and also robustly durable like a countertop. Resin is so durable it is even used to make surfboards using similar processes as to how I create my paintings.
