Mixed Media – Southwest ImagesUsing tiles, stencils, stamps and beads, I create pieces that reflect the colors and imagery of the incredible sandstone formations in southern Utah. I try to spend one week a year hiking and photographing the scenery, soaking in as much of the color and light as I can.
I have small pieces on 4” x 4” tiles, framed in alder, in approximately 20 different designs. I also create mixed media pieces on canvas, ranging in size from 4” x 4” to 10” x 20”. The subject matter for these larger pieces ranges from semi-abstract interpretations of the landscape to colorful shaman and animal figures that are based on ancient petroglyph images.
