About the Artist:
Life has a way of breaking us into pieces; pieces we must pick up and reassemble into a peaceful, joyful existence. Although painful, this journey is never unrewarded. In my efforts to do just that, I have come to painting and mixed media to express myself.
I work developing each canvas with layers of gel medium, gold leaf, handmade papers and personal objects collected throughout my travels. Layering deep acrylic washes builds the depth of color that I so enjoy in life, underwater and on my canvasses. These techniques create a canvas with texture, color, intensity and movement reminiscent of my life and my beloved pottery.
The pleasure I am now finding in life and art is evident in my work. If one of my paintings gives you joy or laughter then I have done what I have set out to do as an artist.
