It's all about "The Process"
What excites me most about creating art? Experimenting with processes, inventing and innovating until I find the perfect combination of materials and techniques. I've spent fifteen years 'playing around' with wood and paint, lettering and lines. Old wood or new, it's a medium that's warm and alive. After years of improving the processes of surface preparation to final finishes and everything in between, my Mosaic Paintings are now fine craft bursting with colors, shapes and a bit of elegant whimsy.
It's All in the Details
Each highly detailed work of art is meticulously painted, and oftentimes carved, to create a tactile piece of wall art. These richly painted pieces invite the viewer to touch the surface as well as immerse in the flow of color and shape.
My unique mosaic-style collection is an animated and innovative fusion of painting and fine handcraft. I have never seen a mixed media [painting] or wood finishing technique I didn’t want to try! It wasn’t until I began to combine the two media using various techniques that I really developed my own style.
Letters, lines and shapes are intertwined into mosaic and geometric designs, using unique processes on wood to deconstruct landscapes, words, travel photos, and even vintage board games into their elemental forms. I then reconstruct these objects into new narratives. Sometimes hidden within the pieces are fun little surprise elements, sort of like an “I Spy” game.
