I have waited many years to have the time to explore art, as my architectural profession has kept me busy! Now is the time! I work daily on my acrylic painting skills, using botanical subjects as my primary area of interest. My garden provides a wealth of subject matter close at hand. Particularly drawn to high contrast light and shadow, I find garden foliage textures both fun and challenging.
A need to accentuate a hard-to-find front door created black canvas banner hangings, painted with acrylic, that simulate mosaics - a fun, quick, and graphic rendition of the complexity of ceramic mosaics.
My love of animals is apparent in the pet portraits I generate, for I enjoy capturing each special personality! I have found a great group of local artists with which to learn and grow, and I look forward to stimulating times!
Here's the small glass mosaic that I did as a prt of Kathy Thaden's recent mosaic workshop...I have quite a few old wood windows from a neighbor, so I have lots more mosaics planned using stained glass!
