As an Experimental Artist I enjoy using unconventional materials and ever changing mediums. During my many years of creating I’ve used tools from the hardware store, taken a torch to my art and searched through countless heaps to rescue salvaged and cast off treasures. I’ve also taken the more conventional route and utilized found papers, acrylic paints and interesting substrates to create collage, art journals and works on canvas. I wrote “Stash and Smash Art Journal Ideas” exploring ways to use recycled materials to create journals.
Zentangle™️, a meditative art style, also finds it’s way into some of my more whimsical pieces. After I became a Certified Zentangle Teacher my work was featured in numerous Zentangle books. I co-authored “The Beauty of Zentangle”, featuring Zentangle art from artists all over the world and ‘Zentangle 12’ working with new patterns and Notans. Public art projects and working with other artists in my community is a passion for me. I am involved in a community mural project and have begun working with a local non profit thrift store and other artists to turn donated and discarded items into art. I hope you’ll join me on this adventure and let me know what you’re creating.
