The artwork combines a variety of techniques that I have studied over the course of years working with clients and whatever interested me at the time. For the small illustrations and paintings, I have studied illuminated manuscripts from the first century onwards. I love the overlapping colors and the combination of calligraphy and art. There is also the gold and silver foiling that many pieces called for in that style. Taking this technique, I crossed over to my other works, mainly handpainted stained glass and oils, and illuminated the work with this. It brings another element into the design, a certain richness and elegance that appeals to me. All of the artwork is originally designed and hand-painted by myself and my team locates, preps and sorts all the work to be included in shows. I use several stained glass paints and dimensional paint, combining them for technique and effect. All of the works include at least 3 techniques and many have embedded crystal or glass drops. Artwork is applied directly to windows in home with fasteners supplied by artist or hangers already attached to pieces. All pieces are produced with reconditioned frames and glass, sourced locally from various thrift shops and recreated as fine art pieces.
