Announcement   Smalls Works are original paintings, usually under 12" x12", on archival panels or canvas.Some small works are offered unframed. If offered framed, there will be a photo of the framed piece.
These small,signed, original,acrylic paintings are starting points for future larger work. They are studies that concern subject matter,composition, color and values.I often use these to prepare for future art exhibits.
They are completed small format paintings that are affordable. I take as much care and effort to paint my "smalls" as I do my larger work.
You'll own a piece of the thought process of a "working artist."
My customers love to visit my studio as I work . I invite you
to peek into my studio as I develop new ideas and try new techniques by purchasing these
acrylic sketches.

About

Still climbing trees....

I graduated from The University of the Arts, (Philadelphia College of Art) with a BFA in Graphic Design. I began my career in the commercial arts. Freelance and teaching assignments ranging from coloring books to spot illustrations later evolved to include employment in signage and display.
Relocating to the New Jersey shore, I raised three daughters, leaving my commercial work behind, I renewed my interest in painting.
A textural approach to my work developed out of a need to "feel" the physical process of painting.
In my early childhood, a tentative attempt as a pianist was frustrated by my inability to translate my excitement of color and textures into sound, which was the initial impetus to express myself creatively . The true instrument needed was to be found in the color, shape and the excitement of brush movements with music as its catalyst rather than its focus. The natural sound of nature provided that sound track while playing in rural fields and exploring lakes in upstate New york as a child.
I walked those fields and played in the lakes, brooks and hiked those mountains as child and it was the remembrance and love of the tactile excitement of that experience that I wanted to communicate to the viewer.
Three dimensional use of rice papers, torn paper and textured gels combined with watercolor, gouache, inks and acrylic paints created the rocks, trees, mountains, florals marshes and oceans.
Recently my work has ventured into an exploration of surface texture on canvas in a more abstract interpretation of landscape and cityscape.
These textural elements have been the unifying focus in my studies and have been the foundation of my painting as a mixed media artist.

    I am a mixed media artist. I emphasize surface textures on canvas with multiple layers of glazing of acrylic paint & modeling gels . My love of rocks,trees and mountains has influenced my choice of painterly landscapes from the East to West Coasts.
