Artist Biography:

I started painting after becoming disabled around 20 years ago, thought I couldn't paint though I loved to sketch, then found it was school rubbish materials and that quality ones made a huge difference. Became addicted and painted daily for many years. Then sadly due to various health issues I haven’t painted for a few years, but an artist friend pointed me in the direction of Acrylic Pours. What fun! Its a way I can create art without the pain issue and problems I was having with conventional type of works. Its addictive, but not having everything I needed my first goes were a bit of a miss…I hate waiting so I tried substituting some of the materials, and found that even though I now have recommended things I still love to try new and different additives and see just what happens. you can see more of that on my art blog jeanniesartadventures.

Then some of the real stuff arrived, acrylic pouring medium, floetrol, 70% alchohol, and silicone so I’ve been experimenting with various different additives. I’m using paints I have, mostly heavy body acrylics, and I’ve bought some standard edge canvas. I have a few deep edge but they are expensive when your’e doing several at a time and hard to get the sides covered without spoiling the top I found.

Artist News/Exhibitions:

I'm currently concentrating on a new to me way of painting, acrylic pouring, which gives fascinating but unpredictable abstract results.
These works are not archival because of some of the additives used to get the results. Its a newish technique so there isn't data yet to support longevity. They may last 5 years, they may last 50 but that's why I'm selling them at bargain prices.
I can use only archival materials on request but those works will cost more than the ones on sale here currently.
