I love to translate my drawings, paintings, photos, & collage into new & very different digital work. I scan my own art work to layer, deconstruct, combine, and transform into new work.

I modify the colors, textures & proportions, and I learn things that inform the my traditional artwork while creating new digital work. It is a joy to work & play with all my art!

I have benefited from local classes, plus painting & sculpture classes in San Miguel de Allende. I was a member of a local fine art printmaking guild & for five years I participated in the Brooklyn Sketchbook Project. I enter work in regional juried art shows when the wind is right. I attend a weekly art seminar that feed the artist in me. but mostly I just make art!

I create a wide variety of mixed media art, with a current focus on 3-D sculpture. I love to post photos & scans of my work in progress, and you can these along with finished work on my art blog at www.ptartist.com

You can also find my art on Facebook

It was too rectangular & blocky to be be flattering. / So I got to work, did some graphic editing, and … posted a new version adjusted to be a bit more pleasing on T-shirts, where the graphic size is limited to a modest rectangle.…

Struggles

I had intentions for my new RedBubble Shop/Portfolio. I had a plan. I would keep it light, bright & beautiful! I would focus on specific styles and types, showing the brighter side of my work. / Well … then maybe not. I want to share my struggles as a creative artist. I live in the world, and the world plays through me and shows up in my work! / So some things will not be light, bri…

Busy Adding Work

I am excited to have sold two shirts, and I have become quite obsessed with adding new images to RedBubble. I have added several, and then I take quite a long time to EDIT each product to try to really feature that image well on the item. / Many images can be “tiled” into repeating patterns, but many others need to be modified for that to work. Other images just do not lend themselv…
