“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
― Albert Einstein
I am a self-taught mixed media artist, specializing in mixed media collage paintings using primarily acrylics, papers, and oil and soft pastels, as well as painting abstract works and landscapes in acrylic. I have sent my pieces all over the world; Israel, Japan, England, Canada, and Australia to name a few. I typically use many layers and textures in my work, and I love scraping away layers to reveal images previously concealed. When I begin a piece, even though I may have a particular outcome in mind, I usually work intuitively, and go with the organic and largely mystical aspects of this process. Using many materials and mediums, getting my hands dirty and digging in, is what makes my work so satisfying to me. I'm intrigued by the way different mediums work together, and will try anything once!
Giving back through my art is very important to me, and two of the charities I've donated to from my art sales are Angels of Assisi, an animal rescue organization, and the American Red Cross.
