SOLD! This is an original mixed-media painting that combines collage, my original photographs printed on canvas and paper, and acrylic paint on plywood; sealed with polymer varnish.
The piece is signed and dated on the front. The sides are painted so it can either be hung as is, or framed. The back has vinyl bumpers to protect the wall.
I approach creating these mixed-media pieces much like working in my visual journals. I have no preconceived idea of what the outcome will look like or exactly what I’m going to do. I just start working and see where it takes me, adding paint, collage & photos, sometimes sewing, sometimes printing or stamping, until I know the piece is finished.

I walk daily in the cemetery across from my house, and took the picture of the flowers there. They are actually plastic flowers, which added to the warm colors.
I took this photo from my friend, Juliana Coles' kitchen window, when I was visiting her for my vacation in 2011. I love how the window frames the scene.
In this piece, my photograph of a cemetery statue started as the background. I collaged, stenciled, painted and stamped around the image to create a visual frame.
