About the art
Recent works are mixed media mosaics made from strips of "palette trash," dried acrylic paint peeled off a plastic palette. I started experimenting with the palette trash a number of years ago. It's just too lovely to throw away. Upping production means making palette trash on purpose, which is really the pineapple upside down cake version of painting. The first couple layers are a sloshy, joyous endeavor with conscious choices in color and mark making. Then I layer up paint to build strength. Scissors, tweezers, glue, wood, ba-bing! Mosaic. And now I want cake.
