Much inquiry & exploration, in Acrylic, Mixed Media, & Pastel. Large paintings~smaller studies. Fascinated by the materials and process.
Above collage of paintings~created during Artist In Residence program at Mendocino Art Center. Inspiring beautiful countryside~redwood forests fill the landscape, close to ocean bluffs. Acrylic paintings on paper and canvas~pigments and glazes, many layers of color and texture.
Etching Portfolio: Suite of 4 offset reproduction prints, on ivory or white paper, plum or black ink. The Etching process is highly engaging, with solvents and resists, various mediums which “etch” the image into the plate. The more the zinc or copper plate is “step etched”, the richer the patina.
