My preferred medium is pastel.
In my art I try to capture not only what I see, but also the feelings the subject evoke in me. It is my hope that the viewer will connect with my art on an emotional level - not just as something that is pleasing to the eye.
I started this joyous and wonderful journey only 4 years ago .
I have exhibited locally at The Firehouse gallery in Milford as well as Milford Arts Center, Lyme Art Association Gallery, Slater Memorial Museum and New Haven Paint and Clay Club.
I have won several awards which inspires me to continue learning and evolving as an artist
I draw and paint simply because I love to do so. Its how I process the world around me, express myself, procrastinate, and generally prefer to pass the time. Art has been a serious part of my daily experience for about fifteen years. Sometimes I have work to show for it, but I create for the act of creation itself, the journey not the destination.

I paint with passion and try to remain true to the image in my head. But if the brush takes me on a voyage, I must obey the brush. I often find myself painting idyllic ocean scenes, that may or may not sell. Meanwhile the market craves painted nudes!

Djoulia is an artist from Grenoble, France. She makes intricate painted collages that shimmer and change with the light. Her favorite color- blue- is used to evoke water, the universe and internal spaces. Her work is entirely hand-cut and is both obsessive and meditative, and offers her a way of finding the “moi intérieur”.
My art is just like real life, just with 100% more mermaids.

Eric Iannucci makes art from objects he finds in the material world...have simultaneous existences in the symbolic world...it is important for the artist to use care in his or her juxtaposition of such objects for all of the tediously placed molecules of our reality may be in dire peril based on their actions. This fact is not lost on Eric Iannucci

The Southern Connecticut Polymer Clay Guild, Inc. is celebrating our 20 year Anniversary. We are an encouraging, fun loving, creative group. We explore the unique properties of the polymer clay material. Mixing it up with other materials. Pushing its boundaries. Learning from each other. Enjoying what we do. Welcoming others to come play!
Members of the Southern CT Polymer Guild, Inc. will be displaying their work. We have collaborated on a mirror frame that incorporates Faux Veneers in keeping with the “fiction” part of the theme for CWOS.
Come visit our space in the Armory to see how diverse Polymer Clay is.
It’s not just the material, it’s the artist’s vision and creativity.
Investigating ideas of object recognition, I cut into familiar pads of paper in a way to make them, at first sight, unrecognizable. On closer inspection, these images reveal themselves: a clouds or murky water made of watercolor washes, graph paper, colored paper, and a sketchbook.

the usual rehashing of events.
we fell asleep

I think the best art is uncanny. It gets your attention the first time you see it, but reveals more when you come back to it. My most recent work is done with CNC carved wood, in the form of small shrines.

Worked to create security holograms for passports, drivers licenses, etc. for 25 years. Recently moved to Connecticut to apply what I’ve learned in my own work.
We’re complex & multi-layered. I build layers of line from multiple directions obscuring, revealing, creating value, & motion. The line may seem chaotic, but it forms rhythmic patterns that unify. The textured surface creates a barrier between the work & viewer, protecting what lies below- allowing the viewer to enter the work, explore & discover.
