Mixed & Textured Media
Digital Art & Collage
My Beginnings as an Artist
I began using Photoshop a few years ago to create collages & abstract drawings. Around the same time my daughter got married & I wanted a different way to display her photos. I found a way to transfer photos onto tiles using acrylic medium then used the same technique to transfer thought-provoking words & expressions onto tiles too.
I discovered many different types of acrylic mediums and started to experiment combining them along with papers & paint to create mixed media pieces. I love using texture & tend to incorporate them into many of the pieces I create.

Recently I have taken on a different project, opening a new gallery featuring art and gifts from local artists.
Some years ago I heard about Ubuntu (oo BOON too), a philosophy that essentially means the interconnection of humanity. It struck a chord with me as it reaffirmed my belief that we are who we are because of each other. It became the "code" name for my goal of having an art gallery and when the space became a reality, I decided to choose the name, Ubuntu Art Space.
The gallery features art from many artists and together we make it what it is. It wouldn't be what it is without each other!
