4 Paws, A Crow and A Paper Boat

My mixed media paintings are created using acrylic paints, cut out paper shapes, colored pencils, pastels and acrylic mediums.   

An idea is conceived (sort of-it can change) and a tentative paper sketch is affixed to a painted substrate. It is then worked on, added and subtracted, until it feels right-the result being a textured, dimensional painting.

This body of work is a continuation of themes that I am continually thinking about and working on: my love of nature, animals, water, color and geometrical design with a few odds and ends tossed in.

My paintings are in numerous collections across the country. I am the recipient of an Artist’s Trust Fellowship and will be featured in Oregon Public Broadcast’s Artbeat that will air sometime in April.
