Owning an art gallery where I can share my work, and other local artists, has always been my dream. In June of 2014, I had the good fortune to lease a storefront gallery space at Everett Station. It has been an amazing experience to open this space every month for the First Thursday Art Walk. Along with showing my own work, I really enjoy having the occasional guest artists. If interested please inquire through my contact page.
From an early age, I have always enjoyed capturing the human form through drawing. As a working artist, my focus has been to create figurative works using personal photographs as a reference. Beginning with graphite and dabbled in many mediums, I sold figure studies in cafe's and restaurants. When I opened this gallery, I wanted to explore new mediums and really try something new. I decided that I wanted to use resourced materials and so I choose recycled magazines to do collage, a medium I've never attempted before.
I enjoy the idea of using sharp geometric shapes to create the classic organic beauty of the figures, and therefore use mostly triangles and rectangles throughout each piece. Using resourced magazines, I carefully build my pallet of colors that I essentially use to “paint with paper.” For this series, I have focused on applying this magazine paper to canvas and board using an acrylic gloss medium and varnish. I have finished each piece with an UVLC stabilizing varnish for protection from light damage.
This series has been a springboard into this new and amazing medium that I hope to keep exploring.
