New Studio Gallery

 

Announcing my new studio and gallery space 

I loved my back yard mini studio, but it was clearly not enough, even with the great covered deck that allowed me to work outside for the majority of the time. I needed gallery space separate from my private home, I and I needed storage. And I needed it all in one place. This spring work was started to expand my mini studio, taking over and renovating the existing lean to tool shed. It was a big job, and with a part time carpenter it took three seasons to complete, but finally it is done and it has exceeded all my expectations. I was able to have it built with almost all reclaimed materials, which really pleased me. Drop me an email or give me a call to set up an appointment for a visit. I look forward to sharing my happy space with all of you.

Oil and Cold Wax

Cold wax medium is a mixture of white unbleached beeswax and odourless mineral spirits. When mixed, it gives oil paint a buttery consistency for painting thickly with texture, and hastens the drying time. I use palette knives and have developed a few distinctive painting methods including mosaic, contour, and layering. These methods can all be combined in one painting or used on their own depending on how the subject speaks to me.
