What’s New in the Studio?
One of a kind earrings! That is what’s new in the studio. I started working on casting resin earrings with my unique abstract expressive paintings and Gelli print papers back in December. The paintings are often a result of play and experimentation with paint and mark makings. When I'm experimenting, some of the mediums, I use are acrylic paint, acrylic ink, and Stabilo Woody Pencils or some other dry medium. Sometimes when these paintings are finished, the paper can look like quite a mess. Next, each pair of earrings is hand cut, usually with an Xacto knife. When the earring shapes are cut out, they look like miniature works of art. No two pairs of earrings are ever alike.
Having never used resin before, I found it to be somewhat of a mystery. After multiple attempts with some successes and some failures, here’s ten important things I’ve learned:
For the most part, I learn something new almost every time I cast resin. I think part of it will always remain a little mysterious to me. With that being said, there are no plans to give up painting in order to become a jewelry artisan. It has been, as I’m sure it will continue to be, a wonderfully creative alternative when I need a break from the canvas.

I'm an artist working in acrylic and mixed media. I love looking for the seen and the unseen by exploring matters of the heart. My one of a kind works of art are in the style of expressionism, representational art, and inspirational art. All of my works of art share in the qualities of redemptive art.
