"Happy Place" 36x36, Mixed Media on Canvas

My practices include works on both paper and canvas, bringing mixed media elements into playful banter on my canvases, after having some needed time away from the studio to present my work in several juried exhibitions.  I came away from the break convinced a bolder, more vibrant use of both color and movement is possible in my work.  Gestural abstract influences are a natural expressive flow for me, and bring together my color sensibilities,  color forms and shapes, landscape perspective, and nuances exploring mixed media possibilities in language and application.

I'm continuing to push myself, learning and growing an artist and digging deeper into this mixed media conveyance,  as I am filled with and inspired by its discovery and challenges in new artistic communication possibilities.
