My mixed media paintings are inspired by everything I come across and love. I especially adore animals, color, primitive, folk and outsider art, food- especially deserts. I love the abstract expressionists, Dutch still life’s, the Renaissance artists , Medieval manuscripts, film images the intuitiveness and narrative rich content of children’s drawing and painting. The process consists of cutting out paper shapes, creating a paper sketch, gluing the paper to a substrate then painting, drawing and layering to create a textural dimensional image. Working full time as an artist, my paintings have been exhibited in galleries, and juried art festivals across the country. I am the recipient of an Artist’s Trust fellowship and several other grants and was a featured artist on Oregon Public Television’s show Artbeat.
