Some artists live in one part of the Universe of Art and explore a theme or themes. I have been strongly attracted to the exploration of different mediums, across the whole Universe of Art. My early years involved mostly oil and charcoal, with forays into watercolour, pastel and acrylic. With these mediums, I explored landscapes, portraits, abstracts and surreal. Recently, my life changed to allow more time for art, leading me into vigorous exploration of new areas of art.
Currently my three major areas are Resin, Encaustic art using hot beeswax, and Acrylic Pour. At the same time, my life also changed with my marriage to a scientist with an interest in astrophotography and, with him, I have explored combining star images with charcoal drawings to convey the meaning of the Universe of Stars. Currently I am learning Air Brush and plan to incorporate that into my artwork shortly.
I run workshops in my air conditioned studio in Resin, Acrylic Pour, and Encaustic. Check out my website and go to my Workshops tab for more details about these workshops.
