Words of Color – Press Release

Words of Color – Artists

The female form calls to me. I revel in its multitude of colors and textures and have chosen these ten works for BWAC Words of Color Show for just that reason.

In addition to being a painter, I am also a photographer. To make my work more accessible, I’ve photographed my larger scale originals. I call these photographs of my paintings “paint-o-graphs.” These limited edition “paint-o-graphs” work individually ($175) or happily as a collection.  The originals are also available.
