This piece was created in a flurry of me being excited about all the new media I was working with including painted tissue paper and gold metalic acrylic paint. It was chosen is a juried exhibition and shown at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia 100 x 10 art exhibit.
Through the years I have experimented with many various techniques and styles of art. My present work is a collaboration of all of this, but I have also chosen to try to push myself in new directions to both explore and challenge myself in the learning and creative process. I enjoy traditional media such as watercolor and acrylics, but have more recently become fascinated with collage. Technology and the computer offers new challenges and possibilities with art and am intrigued with the possibilities of incorporating my love for both. Although in the past, I have primarily painted more traditional landscapes and still life of flowers, I also trying my hand with abstract painting. Color has always played a critical role in my art.
Thank you for viewing my art on Vango.
