About the Art
Welcome to my studio! My current work consists of reverse painted mixed media behind glass panels. Various glass and acrylic paints, inks, pigments, and resin are utilized and applied in a reverse order technique using the glass as my canvas. Vivid colors and art deco patterns influenced by nature comprise the body of my work.
The glass not only provides depth and dimension but also appears to glow when illuminated. Letters and images are painted in mirror image so they are correct when viewed from the front side. Details are painted first rather than last as in an ordinary painting. All details must be correct. In other words, there is no room for error because corrections cannot be made without destroying all previous layers of work.
Working with glass as my canvas is very exciting for me. There is always an anticipated moment of surprise when the finished painting is turned over and viewed from the front. To me, it is sort of magical and like opening a present. Sometimes it's great, sometimes not!
All of my paintings on glass are original and one hundred percent handmade. It is impossible for me to replicate a piece, therefore no two pieces are ever exactly the same. Each original artwork is numbered and hand-signed. You truly have a timeless "one of a kind" piece when you purchase one of my paintings.
