Created in 2018. Haven't we all known the exquisite pleasure and sense of hopefulness that can accompany a horizon that seems to be infinite? It's the perfect setting to dream big dreams and fantasize what the future might hold if only... While the bright and colorful artworks I create look like paintings, in fact, they're mixed media works that combine digital photo manipulation and fiber arts. I use elements of multiple photos to compose a new image reflecting the story I want to tell. I print the image on specially treated fabric using a wide format archival ink printer. The next step in the process is layering and stitching to create additional texture and highlight specific areas. Then three coats of varnish are applied, and the pieces are matted and framed. The completed works really do seem to be paintings, but I know there is photographic “buried treasure” buried at its core.
