Mixed Media with Gold Leaf/Collage
| I am setting up and early April 2014 workshop in
Prescott, AZ if your interested in taking a Mixed Media
workshop this is always a great one! It will be listed
under Workshops on my website.
Always in the process down loading some new paintings on
the website so be sure and check those out.
This summer I started a project with Doug Oliver. Doug is
a national note artist from Prescott, AZ. We have been
painting on the same canvas together. I start out with my
mixed media backgrounds and then Doug does his magic on
the. The results have been extremely exciting for both of
us...I am pure color and Doug has a mixed palette, each
complementing the other...neither of us dominate the end
result, it is visually very exciting!
My work is about a journey. Primarily abstract; it incorporates a love for experimentation with mixed media and color. I work on very large canvases that are gold, copper, and silver leafed. Using the leaf as a reflected light source under acrylic glazes creates exciting and constantly changing images with one's natural light source. The work is a process of building multiple design elements of collage and highly textured areas. It is a layered fusion of leafing, collage and acrylic glazes.
