Technique and Process

My process begins with a sketch and color planning. The background of all my paintings is created with a thick coat of watercolor, and while it is wet I crumple up plastic wrap and place it on top. After 24 hours, I remove the plastic and voila—the result is the pattern you see. It’s a surprise every time as no two are ever alike. Next, I decide on gold paint, shapes, and color. If there are cutout pieces, I lay those on top and rearrange them for several days or sometimes even weeks. I then glue the pieces on top and step away from the painting to allow it to ‘marinate’ for a few days until the piece tells me what the finishing touches will be. I hope my art brings an unexpected visual treat to my viewers.
