2011 & 2012
Each work is created by layering various mixed media such as
heavy-bodied resins, sculpting plasters, metallic leafing materials, stains,
and various chemical reactants.
I truly enjoy exploring the incompatibility of materials to create texture.
Some materials, when layered, form incredible peaks and valleys
as they attempt to separate from one another,
resulting in dramatic depth and interest.
"ICE AND ALCHEMY"
Getting in your head....
helping the client decide
To most people, art is very personal. And it should be.
When you are commissioning a work, specifically for YOUR SPACE, I want it to be meaningful to you. Which leads me to the quad-collection, "Strong Women" (upper part of this gallery page.)
The client that commissioned this collection gave me simple direction: "I want you to create something for this wall. Earthy, with a little color, and lots of texture."
While daydreaming about the space, her personality, her family, and her lifestyle-- I was inspired to create a quad-collection that featured an Asian-inspired medallion and Chinese characters that translate, "strong women."
The client was an independent, single woman, with three adult daughters cut from the same cloth.
A house full of "Strong Women".
