energy transformed

12x12 Mixed Media Collage
This is another one of the pieces that were accepted at VISION GALLERY.  It was inspired as I was picking up the collage papers off the floor after my house was burglarized and literally  trashed.  Read about  how these new works came about and see the detail of another collage here.

frida's garden collage

I love drawing, cutting, altering surfaces, sorting, painting, layering and gluing.  The process is almost obsessive.  This 12x12 collage is called Frida's Garden, and yes, it can be purchased. Contact me if you are interested.  The stamp image on the background is from my line of art stamps and can be ordered from After Midnight Art Stamps.

My other obsession is automatic scribbling.  You can see one of my collaged canvases using this method by clicking here.

workshop sample photos

A few samples of what I will be teaching for Art Unraveled Tuesday July 29th from 9am to 4:30 pm.
We will concentrate on layering the face, but you will also learn how to introduce the image and other shapes into an abstract layered mixed media background.  I will bring some large paintings of these images to inspire you.  Lots of demonstrations on how to add tactile textures, how to unify the  image to the background and how to learn to "see" like an artist.  No drawing ability required, but helpful.  Lots to learn, so do not forget to bring a pad and pencil for note taking.
