My Art

Art is created for myself first, as a derivative of my voice. It is, and always will be filled with extra inspiration and appreciation when someone is moved by something that I have created. It is an amazing reward when someone desires a piece of my art. This allows me, with much gratitude, to continue on my journey of making art. 

      An art series is more than just one piece of artwork; it’s a collection of similar styles and or compositions. In the evolution of an artist, developing an art series with your personal style of art has many rewards.

     All my art has vague borders or parameters. This series, which is my version of pointillism and stippling, is in four phases. It begins with an original pen & ink drawing, which is then redrawn on a cold pressed steel background, which I also create, completing the second phase. Continuing into the third phase, the original drawing is printed on wood and merged with old weathered and patinaed copper. The final phase of this series are a small limited edition prints from the original pen & ink.

Original Pen  &  Ink  Drawings

Phase One

My art begins with the original drawing in pen & ink. Drawn with my version of pointillism and stippling on cold pressed watercolor paper. Eachare matted and framed.

Art on Metal

Phase Two 

After working the image out in dots and lines I then redraw it lager on cold pressed steel using acrylic paint pens. The background metal is rusted and painted which takes a few days to complete. Allowing the paint to mix with the dust of the rust creates a unique, weathered color and expression that becomes an original of its own. The edges are then wrapped in patinaed copper. All of this is done by hand to become part of the completed piece of art.

Art on Wood

Phase 3

These limited edition wood prints are in an edition of Seven. The original Pen & Ink Drawing has been printed on wood; note the wood grain in the image. The wood image is wrapped with copper, patinaed, then mounted to reclaimed barn wood. The edges of the background have also been wrapped with copper and patinaed.
