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.
I am pleased to announce my 2023 Fine Art Festival Line-up. My Fine Paper Mosaic Originals and Limited Edition Giclee's can be viewed at: The Bayou City Memorial Park Art Festival from March 24-26, and at The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival from April 14-16, and at Art in the Square (Southlake TX) from April 28-30.
