Nature has always been an inspiration for me. The irridescent shimmer of fish and dragonflies, the thick and thin of cracks in rocks and the amazing colors and textures on earth.
My textile paintings began as a way to combine my love of printmaking and design. I paint on 100% black cotton with acrylic and metallic paints. Painting on black material is a challenge, but I love how the colors and design look against the black background.
My art begins with a sketch and evolves with layers of paint, adding texture and dept. I may do several paintings of similar design, but each piece is an original. I hope you enjoy this painting as much as I loved creating it.
