Contemporary paintings inspired by the beauty of nature.
News and Happenings
What began as a summer project turned into a full series of dry-mounted and framed Cyanotype prints on handmade paper. I’m pleased to report that every single print was sold during our November Art Show at Aston Mills Arts. This year I will be making another series of framed botanical prints available at the studio or on the website.
2024 Yellow Springs Art Show
I am delighted to announce that I have been juried into the storied Historic Yellow Springs Art Show in Chester Springs, PA for the very first time! The show runs April 27 through May 12, 2024 and is open to the public. This is an exceptional show featuring the work of over 200 national artists.
Diving into Oil and Cold wax
Oil mixed with cold wax, a beeswax and resin mixture, allows for the buildup of many layers, creating an extraordinary richness, visual depth and beautiful transparency. It is in the building up and then scraping back of these layers that a complex history of experience and meaning emerges that I find very satisfying in my work. I find the process to be a metaphor for living, with all of our experiences informing who we are – unique and perfectly imperfect.
Exploring Mixed Media
Working in mixed media provides the opportunity to build a rich history using a fusion of paint, fabric, newspaper and other found papers, as some elements recede into the background while others are built on top. I find mixed media to be wonderfully spontaneous, generating beautiful and complex textures as the paint and collage elements are layered and then sanded or scraped back again and again.
