BEHIND THE LENS AND BRUSH
My art works throughout the years have included folk art, specialty furniture finishes, faux finishes, decorative painting and trompe l’oeil murals. I developed an ability to create textures and finishes with multiple colors and multiple translucent layers of color. I taught these art forms and finishes for many years in Calgary and Black Diamond, Alberta under the trade name Paint-a-tions. .
In 2011 and 2012 I travelled throughout Indonesia and Malaysia and developed a love for batik. Batik is a technique using many layers of wax and dye on silk or cotton.
I love the wax medium and have tried many different styles of work with it. I'm now creating mostly Rice Paper Batiks, and Fabric Batiks, and have a studio set up to teach others the wonderful world of Batik.
I love the different ways to create, different outcomes, different satisfactions. Many years of experimentation and exploration of various materials and techniques have resulted in a body of work of which I am especially proud.
So many art forms, so little time.
Thank You for viewing.
