ABOUT THE ARTIST
I was born to bohemian parents, both talented artists. Growing up, I could draw and paint well, but I rebelled against fine art, preferring crafts. I learned jewelry making, beadwork and clothing design.
After my mother's tragic death, I decided to try to paint, as she had always encouraged me to, as a way to feel closer to her and to heal my sadness.
I refound that natural childhood ability and have kept with it.
ABOUT THE ARTWORK
THE DIGITAL PAINTINGS
The Midnight City Series is my first venture into the realm of creating fine digital images. These works are derived from reference photos taken using different mobile phone cameras during late night walks through downtown Seattle. I painted the images using Gimp and Krita, and a Wacom tablet and pen.
THE CREATIVELY PROCESSED SERIES
All of these images are photo manipulations of pictures of my own paint-on-canvas paintings. Most of the chosen works are from small paintings made especially for art walks or art parties and not previously offered on a website.
