This is a mixed media collage painting done in my autobiographical art journal… I was practicing a new tissue paper technique and added a little drawing to get my message across…

This is part of a two-page collage spread from one of my art journals (8.5″ × 11″ mixed-media pad); it was painted with acrylic, watercolor crayons, tissue paper, washi tape, and ink.

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.
