Oof this artwork was a long time in the making. It was one that took so much waiting between layers and materials that I stalled out many times. The rocks are a mixture of magazine collage, collage from paintings, and real lake stones. The water is layers of tissue paper, acrylic paint, and gel medium.
Object stamping is one of my favorite artistic processes to do with young artists. There is something so magical about scrounging around for everyday items and with a little paint transforming them into beautiful works of patterns, richly layered designs, and textured papers just waiting to be used or simply happy to be an artworkContinue reading “Object Stamped (Wrapping) Paper”
Sea Change, mixed media, 18×24″, 2010. This combination of painting, collage, and drawing came about as a result of a weird dream I had where this woman was sailing away on a Viking ship. I added in surreal details to add to the dream-like idea. It recently found a new home, in a friend’s newContinue reading “Sea Change”
Garbage Landscape, 12 x 16″, mixed media, 2019. Pretty self-explanatory image. The clouds are tissue paper with paint thickly applied. The ground is corrugated cardboard with the top layer peeled off, and painted.

As I got out spring decor this year, I realized I did not have an egg carton wreath for my own front door, even though I was certain I had one somewhere in the basement. Nope. No luck, the wreath was absolutely, nowhere to be found. It was then that I realized I had assistedContinue reading “Egg Carton Wreath”
With grad class on hold and winter break in session from school, I have managed to do some of my own artwork. At any given time I have a minimum of five projects going, absolutely filling my brain and art room. This is a painting I did for my sister, as a Christmas present. IContinue reading “Balancing Act”
This project ended up being one my most favorite that I have ever done with Greta – making our own wrapping paper. I have always kind of hated wrapping gifts and find myself giving sideways glances at those who wrap perfectly gorgeous department store worthy packages. But that all changed this year – I nowContinue reading “Artistic Wrapping Paper”
