I engage in a creative practice using a process I call Quick Collage. I often introduce clients to this practice so that they too can know the joy and delight that comes from deeply experiencing their truest self right there on the page.
These are for my own creative pleasure and are not for sale. Some of these collages have made their way into my posts.
A Sample of Quick Collages
For years I painted in oil, fascinated by light and shadow, and the thin translucent glazes used primarily by early Dutch painters from Jan Van Eyck to Vermeer to Rembrandt. When we originally came to this area to scout for a place to live, we took a side trip to the Abbey of Thoronet. We got a late start and made many stops. I was afraid that we’d get there after opening hours. We finally arrived in the late afternoon on a winter day to find the sun casting very long shadows through the many arches of the abbey. Turned out, our timing was perfect. I was in heaven as I happily took many photos that inspired my Sanctuary Series.
The Pear Still Life series became a study of light and shadow. I also became fascinated with the play of shadows as they are projected and as we project them.
The Sanctuary Series was created to provide peaceful places within a living or working environment. Long shadows mark the edge of light as the winter fades.
Not confined to purely figurative work, rather portrayals of the subject matter, here I am showing both paintings and weavings.
Unless otherwise indicated, all paintings and photographs on this site are my own.
