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!



  1. Thank you for sharing your paintings. I love the texture and colors. Great job!

  2. Hi Deborah - I'm catching up with all the goodies on your blog - it's fabulous!
    Abstract Expressionism is a huge favourite of mine - there are a few permanent pieces in the National Gallery in Canberra - and last year they had a special exhibition of more - very emotional and interesting!!!
