I love to gather a wide variety of wildflowers, grasses, leaves, twigs, moss, mica, quarts and pebbles and to then create images of individual trees, meadow or landscape scenes. Curtain tassels and woven belts make fantastic and unusual trees with intricate roots, trunks and branches to which I add a variety of natural and skeleton leaves.
Touches of acrylic paint on the blossoms and stems enhance and preserve the vibrant colors of the flowers and some of the leaves. Everything is arranged in a frame on a clear glass surface and then encapsulated and protected in a UV resistant epoxy resin for a glossy, tough coat. The original artwork is very dimensional. When seen from the side the flowers and trees look like they are coming out of water and the negative space within the wall art remains translucent.
