Created using repurposed, upcycled and natural materials
Welcome! I'm so glad you're here. Let me take a moment to introduce you to my art.
Because of concerns about the environment, I use natural, upcycled and recycled materials for my art. My paintings are created using repurposed leftover house paint that would otherwise go to waste, and my leaf prints are made using fallen leaves collected on neighborhood walks. I also work with rust, natural dyes, and images torn from discarded magazines. I use the eco-friendly materials that are available to me and turn them into art.
My art is an expression of spontaneity and joy -- a reflection of my interest in nature and ecology -- drawing on patterns and motifs found in plants, flowers, rocks and gems. I rarely pick up a brush, and prefer to pour, splatter, press and drip paint onto the canvas.
Enjoy the art on these pages, and feel free to contact me with questions and comments. I read and reply to every message, and I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your interest in my work!
