Chair Affair Artist

I have been rendering art for as long as I can remember, first with oils and drawing materials.  Later, family responsibilities and work competed with my time leaving me only random opportunities to pursue this life-long passion.   Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have intensely investigated acrylics enjoying their quick drying time and less toxic chemicals.  Through my abstract paintings with acrylics I have discovered the many facets of utilizing acrylics to apply texture with just the paint alone.  I love the way you can build texture with theses paints…almost like sculpting.  I also love to experiment with using the many acrylic products, mediums and gels that are available to explore texture even further.  Always interested in drawing and painting the human figure, I am now trying to combine my knowledge of acrylics and texture with figure drawing and painting.
