My exploration into abstract landscapes led me to pick up Acrylic Paint Pens for the first time. In order to achieve the level of detail I wanted, the paint pens were a revelation. I created the background using several types of palette knives. From there it's all due to my imagination and the drive to create as much detail in any given space as the pens allowed me. There are several layers of the pen-work to create a varied and contrasting finished look.
Frances Jemini grew up watching her graphic-artist mother create art out of paper, cardboard, fabric, oil paints - you name it - and has thus tended towards artistic interests her whole life. It led her to study architecture at Virginia Tech, which is where she began creating acrylics and mixed-media artwork. Her style has been described as expressionist abstract centering mainly on the use of bold colors and deep textures and reflects her strong architectural background. Currently residing in Athens, Georgia Frances has also been greatly influenced by the local artist scene and enjoys incorporating avant-garde materials into her work. Her multimedia designs and artwork consist of found materials including cardboard, sheet vinyl, plastic, old credit cards, string and junkyard metal.
