Mixed Media Works

The Hickory, NC based writer, Lisa Marie Gordon described my work best. After spending the last 20+ years as a Faux painter in the area, my new focus on original art “shows how (my) love of creating fascinating visual textures has progressed into a deeper form of creativity”. I turned to creating original pieces in 2008 at first to satisfy a need for emotion release. They have progressed to a more playful form and reflection of my fascination with the natural world. Combining sculpture with Faux painting techniques, my current interest is with the miniature landscapes of semi-precious stones, gems, fossils and interesting geological features.
