I love cats. I love house cats, cartoon cats, lucky cats, and big cats. I love hanging with my cats, looking at them, and watching cat videos. As much time as I spend with cats, I must admit they sometimes seem like they come from another planet.
These collages are created with acrylic skins that begin with a line drawing made with fabric paint. Each character has glow-in-the-dark eyes. Once the fabric paint has dried I cover the drawings with many coats of gloss gel medium to create a skin. The reverse side of the skin is coated with paint and gel printed-paper, which affords many opportunities to experiment with transparency and opacity. Each canvas these figures are attached to has many layers of handmade papers and text, as well as opaque and transparent layers of paint.
