My art combines technology and nature with a great deal of empathy. I start with a concept or an original photo or image that I've created using AI (artificial intelligence) and transform and embellish it through filtering, reflection, layering it with other images, and then augment the color, texture, and pattern. I arrive at a digital expression from a perspective that is deeply personal and graphic in nature. The galleries below show the diversity in my work; from portraits and landscapes, to abstracts and photographic pieces. You can find even more if you explore my Series Gallery tab. THANK YOU for viewing my work.
A little about me... I come from a traditional art background and discovered encaustic painting in college. I loved this ancient art form for the ability to layer and create depth on a two dimensional surface, and the ability to incorporate other elements into the canvas such as found objects, photography, and even imprinting the wax with texture. When I discovered digital art, it opened up a new world of possibilities to capture the otherworldly effects of encaustic in a medium that allowed me to push what I loved about encaustic to a new level. I can even incorporate photos of my old encaustics into my new work - providing a merger of my past and present. I lean towards the bold, unusual, and emotional - likely due to many years in the graphic design industry and a love for posters and image.
I consider myself an outsider, with experience from a long career in design-related industries, a love of gardening, dance, movies, the human condition and still hold the wonder of a child in so many ways creatively. I took a hiatus of 30+ years from creating personal art and now that I've rediscovered that passion, I felt as though I found my voice again. Welcome!
