Mixed Media Paintings
I am a ‘visual scavenger’ inspired by patterns and compositions found in nature.
By combining digital scans and photographs with drawings of bits of bark, leaves and stones, I compare contrasting microscopic and macro views and the relationships between them.
To create my work, I explore the details I’ve discovered and captured with photographs. First by dissecting the images, then reconstituting them with fabric, thread, paper, paints, pencils and acrylic mediums. I layer, draw and collage, building marks, pattern and imagery to create my layered landscape abstractions.
