I've been an artist and graphic designer in Austin, Texas for 20 plus years and I have a degree in graphic design. For the past 10 years I've painted on a daily basis as I transitioned from full-time graphic designer to full-time artist.
My mixed media paintings are most often a combination of acrylic paint, collage, pencil and screen printing.
Beginning with themes including nature, animals, birds and energy, my work is a search for positivity. Throughout the process of mixing, remixing, covering and revealing the icons from these themes I transition from being the guide of the work to having the work guide me. This process of guiding and being guided is full of mystery, amazement and excitement for me. Amazing too, how this energy and joy is transmitted to the viewer.
