I’m a bay area painter and wanted to explore working with natural pigments and make paint from fungi, plants and earth pigments—insects too. I first learned about natural dyes as an undergrad at Cal State Fullerton, an experience that years later I mined and refined as an artist—a painter looking to use and develop materials that reflected my organic, local and sustainable ideals. is my website full of photos featuring the process of making water based and oil based paints from non synthetic (local when possible) pigments.
