I try to draw everyday: My goal is to have fun creating images with whatever tools are at my disposal.
I specialize in collage, digital art, digital collage, digital painting, drawing, mixed media, painting, photoshop, procreate.
I kept a dream journal for almost 8 years. This drawing is based on one of the thousands I had many years ago.
During a meditation session 10 years ago I almost had an out of body experience. That same night I dreamt I was floating away into the heavens but I could only go so far because I was tethered to the planet.
This drawing was inspired by a recent visit to the Long Beach aquarium. It’s a visual fantasy about social conformity.
watched DEAD RINGERS and VERTIGO a few nights ago and these two wonderful films inspired this drawing.
Yesterday my husband and I visited the Long Beach acquarium, as a result I had this dream about swimming with these glowing jelly fish.
Here’s an old watercolor I made years ago. I used the watercolor thickly because I was curious about what the outcome might be. I concluded that It looks kinda like gouache.
My favorite film genre/style is film noir so I wanted to play with black & white shadows with this drawing
Sometimes it’s better not to describe an art piece and let others come to their own conclusions.
Leaf and landscape: Acrylic on canvas. Here’s another old painting.
Another exploratory collage with layers and cropped images.
Strait portraiture. This is a digital collage made up of a bunch of old artwork of mine which I layered and textured one on top of the other. Redrew the portrait to make it more photo like. This was just an experiment which is all I do anyway. I added my usual geometric lines simply because I like the way it breaks up the composition.
Digital illustration, collage
I know this piece has a creepy vibe but I still enjoyed reducing it down to the bare essentials: A dark sinister shape with my usual geometric lines.
Suddenly I find myself moving in another direction: Simple flat shapes (silhouettes) that seem more interesting now. I guess I’m fickle. . Looking back at all my artwork I don’t see much consistency in style or execution. In my defense and because this is just a hobby for me I don’t think it really matters. That’s the nice thing about art as a hobby . . It’s liberating not having to please an audience. So, I’ll just continue experimenting and having fun . . .
As a long time meditator I had specific experiences during meditation that I’ve tried to convey visually (often unsuccessfully). In this drawing the suggestion of birth or rebirth is a recurring theme in my work. Symbolically it refers to growth, transformation and expanded self-awareness. This piece is just a visual representation of this journey.
