North Platte, NE
I am a color pencil artist from North Platte Nebraska. My creative journey began after I lost everything in a devastating tornado and resolved to positively use the remaining days on this earth. My appreciation of animals and all life has to offer has directed the jubilation of my art work.
I blend seven or more layers of color pencil on a heavy watercolor paper using a brush and solvent. Next I transform the final layers, with precision, into a detailed montage of animal, color and abstract design. These are mounted onto an archival foam core, sealed with a UV protective and finished with an encaustic paste wax to protect against wear. Finally I frame with a simple black frame to focus on the art work.
