Announcement    WHY I CREATE WORD PAINTINGS— Because people have told me how
inspiring, empowering, and comforting they make them feel.

WORD PAINTINGS are not just art that one is attracted to as decoration
for a room but more to encourage, support, inspire, empower, remind
as well as bring positive energy and color into one's life.

WORD PAINTINGS / ORIGINAL ART— introducing the idea of words
being magical, empowering, and inspiring to live with as a form of art.
Driftwood infused with the spirits of it's experiences and journey
on ocean waters, coming to rest on the Jersey shores.
Driftwood colorfully hand painted with words bringing positive energy
to whomever and wherever they may be displayed.

VISIONARY ART— of an empowering nature as well as playfully inspiring,
as well as nourishing to the mind, spirit, and soul.

GIFTS— to appeal to a buyer's artistic nature as well as spiritual and
higher Self, or a gift for those close to the heart.

About

Words As Works of Art

I enjoy the power of communication through words, and see myself as a visual artist, working with a variety of mediums, and in this case paint, driftwood, and at times flowers and paper.
About eighteen years ago, I began exploring the idea of using the encouragement and inspiration of words in an offering to the public as works of art. The creation of the word painting came about from this line of thinking.

I did not want to create a "sign" but rather a visually pleasurable art piece, unique with imperfections, subtleties, and variations that an original work of art would have. When I moved to the Jersey shore I found driftwood abundant and useful as my "canvas" on which to create my word paintings and art works. I purchased "mistake" cans of paint from stores, along with other needed mediums, and collected flower petals and feathers to add to the finished pieces.

I imagined the journey that each piece of wood must have taken before bringing it to rest in the sun on the sandy Jersey shores, and felt infused within each piece was the spirit and energies of it's journey, which made it even more magical and original in it's being.

I hope each viewer, shopper, patron of my shop understands my intention while making their decision to purchase.
