My body of art consists mostly
of landscapes, but lately I've been
adding figurative works again. I use
color blocks of cut, painted or
printed paper and found materials.
These collage works are produced on
boards, canvas and/or paper.
Modified colors and textures are painted or printed in acrylic. Wet or dry charcoal sticks, oil sticks and other drawing implements are used. Abstracted forms are added in collage paper or fabric. Acrylic mediums and varnishes, oil varnish and cold wax are used to complete the pieces depending on the substrate.
Working with a planned color palette, theme and collage elements, I use shape, texture and color to interrupt and pivot a piece in an unexpected direction. I want to create a moment in time to pause and consider...that's different! Even though my work is not completely representational, it evokes the scene of the subject and the feel of the moment.
I am proud to have shown works and to be a member of the NAWA, NAWASC, Atlanta Collage Society, and the Artists Collective Spartanburg. In January 2022, I applied for an artist's residency at the Hambidge Center and submitted for the South Arts Prize. I am constantly working to apply for art exhibitions, residency opportunities while making art. Thanks for visiting my website.
