Piece description from the artist
This is a mixed Media: paper, glass, plastic straws and acrylic on canvas. Although I began as an oil painter, I found myself gravitating towards mixed media as I became more experienced. The textures that I can achieve from torn paper, glass, string, paint drips, and solvent have a quality that can be predicted but not entirely controlled. I love the variability of mix and matching different techniques: drawing, painting, bookbinding, monotype, film photography, image transfers, weaving, collage, silkscreening, digital manipulation. The resulting works reflect their own unique personalities.
