Watercolor and Mixed Media on Mylar
New creations are works produced on Mylar, incorporating mixed media. This transparent material allows for the manipulation of images on both sides. The result has been the Seascapes and Forest Series. Expressing myself and the world around me through drawing and painting has been a “Leitfaden” throughout my life. My background as a cartographer, interior designer and art therapist, all have influenced the style and images of my work. This found expression in the geometrically ordered, aesthetically pleasing, or ultimately organic images.
What has always captured my interest has been to express how and what we feel in an abstract manner. It is a representation of nature and the
feeling our experience of nature evoke. The medium evolved from oils to watercolor to mixed media, encaustic and mylar. Experimenting in different media has been an exploration and discovery. This has led to ways of using layers of colors and textures to convey inner dispositions, allowing the viewer to experience his or her unique emotional reaction to the art itself.
