I have wanted to uniquely combine my painting with my photography for many years. Now, using digital techniques I have developed a process specific to this style.” I have been an artist for over 35 years working in a multidisciplinary approach in metal design and mixed media. My travels and studies have reestablished my original disciplines, painting and photography, as the major components of my work. Printing on transparent layers of acrylic medium, (like plastic wrap) I can transfer the images to the metal surface and alter them by painting both under and over them. I can add as many layers as needed and decide where to deepen the images or keep them transparent allowing the metal surface to reflect through. The best surprise is when a piece is finished and you see it in different room lights, coming from different angles. Some things just disappear while other parts of the piece that you didn’t even notice, jump out at you!
