“My mixed-media “PULP” art series from the 1930s and 40s represents the best of a bygone era. Bold, heart-pumping colors, quirky typefaces with over the top adventure, romance and fantasy stories.
My “Nature” series employs graphic techniques to create rough textures, and rich color for a vibrant experience. Both series combine the same use of hand-made paper with a raised dimensional format, creating deep dark shadows which make the imagery jump off the canvas..two different subject matters with one result……artwork that grabs the viewer by the lapels.” -Marlowe
