I specialize in digital art, drawing, fine art, painting.
Getting older and getting closer to the other side.
I made three versions of this piece. I posted the first version days ago but after several days I deleted it because I really didn’t like it. The next two iterations were better. This final version I decided to add a shadow image to the face . . . It’s a little eerie. It is what it is.

I struggled with this piece, as a consequence, I made several iterations because I was never happy with any of the results. I finally decided to post this version.
I’ve been painting with PROCREATE almost exclusively and enjoying it tremendously. I am constantly playing with visual ideas and it’s so easy to edit and change direction with this software. So when I began this piece I was thinking about the giant Olmec Head sculptures in Mexico but then I found myself thinking about Russian Nesting Dolls. I liked the idea of these heads nested in another head until one reaches the final version of oneself.
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. I used an old non-objective watercolor of mine for the background and layered it with another simple abstract color field painting I had laying around. I liked the textural qualities that occurred from the layering process. It was fun experimenting with this piece but I feel it’s unresolved. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the experience because I keep learning so much.
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.

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 . . .
