Thank you for visiting My Twisted Gallery!
I create mixed-media collages, abstract paintings and art journals. Recently, I have taken to MOSAIC and am having fun creating with local natural slate and Italian glass smalti!

I am an abstract artist working in the mediums of mixed media collage, acrylic painting and mosaic. What I create depends on what I am drawn to. One day I might see an image in a magazine and that will spark the creation of a collage. Another day, I may want to play in colorful paint. The next day, I may want to break things like slate, rocks and beautiful Italian glass (smalti) for an abstract mosaic.
Whichever medium I work in, the common thread between them is texture. I enjoy the look of and feel of different materials that add depth, interest and balance to a piece. Being a tactile artist, I like to use my hands, get dirty and really get involved with the materials that I use. In my collages, I will incorporate many items other than paint using images, found objects and commonly overlooked everyday items. My mosaic pieces consist of local natural slate and rocks, Italian colored glass, metal studs, beach glass, chains or rusted and discarded metal treasures I find along the path of life.
