  • original acrylic pour paintings on cardboard
  • this is an art form I encourage everyone to try
  • pours are casual art
  • salvaged corrugated cardboard is a favored substrate
  • these are studies and design boards, meant to be handled and moved about the house at will
  • smaller pieces in particular, are meant to be leaned on a table or shelf
  • paintings have no frames and no hardware unless otherwise specified
  • at gallery works are displayed on small stands or hung, unframed, by wire attached to the back
  • larger works are on salvaged campaign signs made of a corrugated plastic
  • a few pieces are done on wood and traditional canvas
  • please use and enjoy these!

hand painted towels

  • acrylic paint is thinned with water and used to paint directly on dry fabric
  • paint is allowed to dry for several days and is then heat set
  • the result is long lasting color that holds up well to household use and laundering
  • linen and cotton are the best fabrics
  • you can do this easily at home; here is a video example:

custom print towels

  • towels made of fabric, custom printed with some of my art
  • fabric printing done by; you can print your art there, too!

embroidery designs

  • designs based on my own art
