As an artist who uses photography and paint in my mixed-media paintings, I'm interested in creating artwork that tells a story–real or imagined!
MIXED MEDIA PAINTINGS USING MY HANDPAINTED PHOTOGRAPHS
Original Photography, Collage, and Acrylic Paint
When you choose original artwork, you're adding charm and warmth to your home or office and transforming it into living space with distinctive character. Your art choices are a means of personal expression and reflect your individual personality.
Collage has been described as painting with paper. I enjoy using torn paper from new and old magazines to create artwork such as vintage shoes and eyeglasses.
TORN PAPER COLLAGES
Using Torn Paper Instead of Paint to Create a Painting
The collages shown above were created using bits of cut and torn paper. The papers come from new and vintage magazines, old dress patterns, stationery, maps, postcards, and vintage personal photos and letters. The original arwork is created on gallery wrapped canvas and finished with three coats of UV acrylic sealer/varnish. These works are available as giclees and can also be licensed for home decor and stationery products.
