This abstract landscape was inspired by one of my favorite artists, Richard Dibenkorn. I was moved by his use of colors and layering simple and complex passages close together. I have added pieces of lace and other materials for additional texture. This piece deserves a good long gaze to appreciate it.
This green dimensional cabinet piece I build to house objects. There is a positive and negative play going on with the surface. Paint layers are built up as well as strides from woodcutting tools are scraped away. The boxes are lined with a decorative green felt fabric which you can customize by placing personal and unique objects inside for display.
These pieces will be going up for sale on Etsy this spring. Stay tuned for more to come…
This is a new series I’ve been working on/talking about for a while. It combines mismatched fabrics with oil paint. I am interested in the mystical meaning behind animals. There are some animals I feel especially drawn to. After doing some research on the symbolic meanings of these animals I found it interesting that many were characteristics I found in myself or desire to possess. I also like the idea of people resembling animals either by appearance or personality. This might be obvious to some people since I’ve been coined as a mouse by some of my close friends and have named my art and design company, Mousey.
