At first you instantly recognize my art as a bird, a frog, a beetle or butterfly but you’re not sure what it is made of. Look closer at it, touch it, then maybe you can figure it out.
3-D Mixed Media
My happy little creatures are made of a mixture of materials. I use wood, paper, clay, wire, beads and paint in combination. I work using shape, form, texture, line and color.
I make armatures shapes out of wood and wire. I build the forms using air dry clay. I press in textures and cut in their features. Each creature is painted with a base coat of several colors and then a top coat with picks up the texture. Some are outlined. All are sealed with acrylic spray.
