Mixed Media - Original Paintings, Digital And & Mixed Media
HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS is a modern impressionist acrylic piece created right here in my studio in Asheville, North Carolina .
It started out as a PHOTO of Norman Rockwell inspired holiday season piece I was working on, and made its way through photo-manipulation – (and my imagination) - to tell a story of hearts and flowers and love of life. As such, it invites your interpretation.

THANK YOU for looking and considering my art work and images. Your time and your comments are prized.
If you enjoy counting simple pleasures -say “YES!” when you experience them, then this, and the following members of the gallery collection, could be for you. “YES!” is a series created to remind us of life-affirming experiences. It began as message art for cards and posters, but you may wish to add it to your décor.
This new media –contemporary narrative art– ( combinations of pencil, ink, paint, photo work and textured applications) – here unfolds in a “collage” of color and texture. Whether on paper, canvas, or as a digital rendering, the result is “contemporary mixed media art” that celebrates nature with a nod to joie de vivre.
SYMBOLISM:: The juxtaposition of color with changing light symbolizes positive change ... the journey to new perspectives. Represented here is a story of connection. May this piece become an impetus for change with compassion.
METHOD:: I create visual narratives exploring any number of alternative techniques to achieve a shared sense , with you, of being “in the moment” -- (composite and/or multiple layering of images-photo-manipulation and finally digital rendering)—
From what is around me, I take my sketches into canvas work, then take a photo creating a mixed media digital rendering such as what you see in this piece. I reach out for the story and metaphor via texture, patterns, repetition - a feeling of lyrical abstraction of elements offering a sense of collaboration - a collection of concepts and forms taking shape.
PHILOSOPHY: “NOT AN IMAGE BUT AN EXPERIENCE”--
As we - each of us- (and as a collection of living creatures) - face the fraught process of selection every day- may we find what is positive and possible.
