This body of work began sometime in the mid 1990's, as an experiment, seeing if I could adhere a dress to a canvas and create a painting over all the textures. "Dress painting" is a term I came up with to explain these when I simply couldn't think of anything better. Over the years they have evolved, with new elements of collage being added. Dress patterns, photographs, and embroidery all appear from time to time, as well as lino block prints, rubber stamps and gold leaf. I will use this space to explore the beginnings of this series, as well as showing my latest work. If the piece is available for sale you'll find the price at the bottom.

Studio Slice #7

One of the many cool things I love about this crazy artist lifestyle is getting to trade with neighbors at shows. Seth Fitts was my neighbor this weekend, and I love this little mixed media collage. Beginning with an old photo of a dog standing on his doghouse he added graphite, acrylic, and text. I hope you don't mind me reproducing this without your permission Seth!

  1. Nice trade! A friend and I traded some art just last week. It's a great way to start an art collection.
