Description: Whimsical mixed media art on canvas from a vivid imagination
Colorful Expressions from a Vivid Imagination Born in Connecticut to parents who indulged artful wishes of paints, inks, dyes, plaster and every other means to create, my family exposed me to nature, people, architecture & the arts, all influencing my work to this day. With a combination of formal training and self taught methods, I’ve had professional successes with painted furniture & accessories, art quilts, wearable art, jewelry design, as well as cooking and baking. A fertile mind rarely devoid of inspiration, my philosophy is simply: ‘Start!’. Entertaining each flight of fancy would be overwhelmingly impossible, but none at all possible without a beginning. Taming a wild imagination to see visions through to fruition is a real and enjoyable way of life. But, alas, a start is the only way to the underlying hope of ‘Finish’. Embracing tangets often leads to new and compelling pathways and, more often, stunning outcomes. Mixed media on canvas has been my focus for the past three years. It allows the freedom of paint with the texture and enrichment of inks, decoupage, original & borrowed photography, kirigami, fabrics, silks, yarns, glass beads and ephemera brought together to produce fascinating, color-rich canvases. “Architexture” is my most recent collection. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
