Contemporary Mixed Media Paintings
My art is truly a celebration of process, which for me is a series of happy accidents coupled with an intentional final composition.
Each piece starts out with a spontaneous application of diverse materials- such as acrylics, graphite, pastels, paint markers, hand painted papers or book pages.
Nothing is off-limits.
Then the creative dance of scraping back, sanding off and then layering back on begins.
Individual realistic elements such as silhouettes, flowers, and photographs of windows and doors are added to the somewhat abstract surface to ground the final painting.
