Visual Artist: painter, printmaker, mixed media

 

"My interests are experimenting and learning. I am always eager to learn new things especially in the sphere of art, e.g., wearable art and computer art, and experimenting in mixing media. e.g., fabric collage for wearable art or wall hangings or perhaps on a stretched canvas. I enjoy taking classes and workshops in order to widen my view of possibilities and techniques and for comradeship and encouragement.

My style is loose (experimental?). I dislike picky detail. I would rather "wing it" than paint within the lines."
