What do you do?
When I tell people I'm an artist they assume - like 99.9% of the time - that I paint. Then I mention that I'm actually a mixed media textile artist, and that's when they mostly go all fuzzy eyed and confused. I hand them one of my cards and say "please look at my website and blog and all will become clear." Well, the secret is out: I do paint! I've just been playing that card pretty close to the chest. So here are a couple of my Abstract Expressionist paintings. I mean, of course I use a lot of paint in my mixed media work, so I guess it's not much of a stretch. And these paintings are, as anyone giving it a bit of thought can see, TEXTILES, as in CANVAS is a textile. So it isn't a far leap. Enjoy!
