TEXTURED : MIXED MEDIUM PAINTINGS

Mixed media paintings created with indigenous island materials and colorful paint!


On the island of Oahu, Hawaii, I create a continuous series of paintings that are colorful, subtle and pleasant. Some of the materials I use are - banana tree, sugarcane and coconut husk fibers. Also included, beach sand, wood, paper and other natural elements indigenous to our Island. I use brushes and durable paint to achieve the many layers of color. Each work is unique. I trust you will enjoy my textured paintings made in beautiful Hawaii.

My first textured painting was created with Pine Needles and Sand in New Jersey

In southern New Jersey, especially in the Pine Barrens, the ground is composed of sand and covered with pine needles. After a walk I decided to create a painting with objects from the area. I applied sand, pine needles and paint to a canvas. Once a layer was dry, I painted a different color over it. Due to the textures, traces of the previous color remained and after numerous layers of paint, the color's became many. The surface of the painting became visually exciting and the natural materials offered themselves as piece's of the local landscape.

The Process of Creating the Mixed Medium Works on Canvas. 

A  work of art with pieces of the environment is very special. In the past I created handmade paper designs that consisted of coconut husk, banana stems{leaf} and sugar cane grass. Now, I apply the materials directly to the canvas. I often use sand and paper which are good materials to paint on. I enjoy making textured paintings. My inspiration is purely to pleasure the observer's with color and texture. When I begin painting, I prefer not to know what the final result will be. Creating the picture is more adventurous this way. Often the unpredicted result is amazing.
