Bold, iconic figurative work influenced by religious imagery, the masters, vintage postcards and circus sideshow banners.
My “Everyday Icons” are images of people or animals living or dead, real or imagined, whom I wish to venerate on a more personal level. No less an Icon for their familiarity, the mixed media paintings incorporate metal leaf, beeswax, acrylic, texture, gems, glitter and oil to create a portrait, which celebrates the sacredness in all of us.
