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. Using epoxy resin, oil paint and sculpting paste and combining sculpture with Faux painting techniques, my current interest is with the miniature landscapes of semi-precious stones, gems, fossils and interesting geological features.
