Colourful Contemporary Art

I am a professional artist and art teacher.
I paint the tenacious bits of wild that defy human activity in a manner inspired by
my fascination with fossils and designed to make the viewer look deeper.
Studio visits by luck or by appointment are welcome.

Mono print fun

I hope you've been out side enjoying this glorious spring weather, I've been in the garden a bit, not as much as I'd like, but it's early yet.

Art wise; I've spent the week tinkering with some experimental techniques. I added diatomatious earth to gesso to use in place of molding paste, a friend-Heather Kohl does this and I've always loved her work. I've got to say that she makes it look easy, and it's not!

I think I'll be cutting up my experiment, there are a couple of parts of it I like that I'll save, the rest I'll discard.

I've also been playing around with mono prints again. My students love printing, and I do too, this printers daughter didn't fall too far from the proverbial tree.

I use high density Styrofoam (un-used meat trays) purchased from our local grocer for these prints. They're fun and just challenging enough to keep it interesting.
