I’ve been mixing wet oil paints and pigments into the uncured resin to create a variety of swirly, marble-like textures.”
Andy’s future involves bringing together all of his work. “I want to continue working on paintings for gallery shows, but I’d love to branch out into some new mediums such as a book or an animated work,” he says.
