The Process

What is a Dutch Pour?

A dutch pour is an acrylic pouring technique that uses air to manipulate the paints on a canvas. You can use a hair dryer, straw and lungs, or anything that blows air to make a dutch pour. Dutch pours are known for the ribbon like edges and cell lacing that can be achieved using the technique.

How does the artist feel during the process?

Happy and exhilarated!! There’s a freedom to pouring and spinning and firing and blowing the air. It’s very elemental. You can’t help if we moved by the movement that the color a liquid are turning about and doing … it’s very beautiful.

What is the artist inspired by?

Astro photography and macro photography are two things that inspire me in my painting journey .

The mermaid. Acrylic on canvas with resin and sequins.
Dragon Tales. acrylic canvas with resin.
