An abstract expressionist titles the the category I find myself exploring today, yet my work began with mixed media creations: fiber arts, mosaic tiled work, metal sculpture, and jewelry. As my art turned to painting, I evolved to the form you see today: sculpture on wood (or canvas) to form works with an impasto-like two-dimensional depth complete with layers and layers of paint. I have been working and selling mixed media and fine art paintings for more than 18 years. My innovative, whimsical, playful style blends the tactile depth of sculpture (using paint or wall plaster) with the rich tones of acrylics, oils, and 23-karat gold leaf. My life is inspired by two themes, and you can find both in my art and poetry. A heart theme in my work expresses the soul-felt theme that guides me: “Follow your heart.” Iridescent accents and deep contrasting colors carry my personal motto “Live out loud.” “Adventure lies not in the places we seek, but in the moments we create in the places we treasure.” –RMC
