Charcoal Dust and Pastel Paintings
Charcoal dust painting is photo realistic but in the unique style of the artist. While photgraphs are used as references in the process, they must be the original work of the artist. No studio or other copyrighted works will be used in the creation of the charcoal dust paintings.
Acrylics have their own advantages, characteristics, and unique possibilities. Acrylic paintings now make up a significant part of the permanent collections of museums and art galleries. Artists' acrylic paint was introduced in the 1950s and since then has dominated the arts and crafts market. In addition, it has been accepted by artists as a viable alternative to oil paint.
The unique jewelry is designed from sterling silver or goldfilled wire, formed into links, woven into various patterns. The addition of genuine Japanese or Chinese freshwater pearls, Swaroski crystals and antique beads makes each piece a one of a kind creation. Each piece is designed and hand made with meticulous detail.
The stained glass projects are done in the style of Tiffany copper foil method.
Alcohol Ink Paintings
Alcohol inks are painted onto tiles and mounted on slate or in frames. These inks produce vibrant colors and lend themselves to abstract and impressionistic artwork but are also used in realistic paintings.
