Capturing the simplistic beauty and design complexity found throughout nature are the objectives of my work. Several decades of painting the fascinating splendor of nature with watercolors furthered my skills and knowledge of color, layering, blending, composition and balance. Ten years ago, following several inspirational trips to Greece and Italy, I embarked upon a career transformation to boldly embrace the challenge of mosaics. Working determinedly since, I created a technique to achieve “realism through micro-piecing mosaics” utilizing an array of colored, textured and patterned papers. In essence, my brushes and paints have given way to blades and papers.
To support this new technique, over forty-thousand colored, textured and patterned papers from around the world have been amassed, most were destined for a landfill. Repurposing paper intended for landfills to create art lasting generations is artistry itself. This collection affords a near limitless palette for desired color, shading, texture and piece-size selection to accomplish the tactile illusion of depth, color, dimension, transition and movement. Each paper piece, often cut nearly razor thin, is selected for shade of color, then individually and carefully shaped yielding a mosaic with marvelous realism. From a distance the finely cut pieces fuse seamlessly but close observation reveals the textures, precise razor cuts and patterns that add wonderment to the artwork.
We have completed our Fall 2023 Fine Art Festival itinerary and my focus now turns to creating new Fine Art Paper Mosaics for the Spring 2024 Art Festivals. Thrilled to share I have just been notified that I am invited to Exhibit at the MAIN ST Forth Worth Arts Festival in April 2024 !! More to follow .....
