2011, 60” x 48”, pearlized acrylics on specially-prepared canvas
Power in Symmetry
Bold and beautiful, this image was in my mind and on my “to paint” list for a couple of years. I wanted to create a powerful and balanced painting that dominates her space with no apologies. She is smooth and polished, yet with a texture of her own. Her body is airbrushed to compliment smooth skin, while fur coat is created with thousands of individual brush strokes entirely of pearl black, platinum, and silver.

I started years ago as a canvas artist and migrated to painting on metal. With my pearl series, I’m integrating what I love most about creating on metal into my canvas works. The interplay of light and color-shifting techniques makes this new pearl series truly unique.
