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 her 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 genuinely unique.
