The giant people
of my imagination
are love seekers
sowing seeds of faith
and hope
everywhere they go…
theirs is a glorious bond.

This mixed media collage was made from an unusual mix of materials: acrylic, wax pastels, ink, two painted recycled Bounce dryer sheets, torn paper, printed and painted cotton, and hand-painted watercolor paper, all mounted on canvas painted with acrylic. The main artwork (center) was carefully done on the dryer sheet (I used freezer paper as a backing to stabilize the dryer sheet) and then adhered it to the collage as a near final step in the creation process.

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.
