With the COVID 19 pandemic, my previous work of 20 years ground to an abrupt halt, giving me the unique opportunity to pivot my creative efforts. Taking advantage of the 18 month down time, I pursued a long-held desire to work with resin, and poured myself into creating this new art form I call Resin Fusion. Working from my studio in the hills of Black Mountain, NC, I found inspiration in exploring new techniques and finishes. “A willingness to fail is the most precious asset I possess. It allows me to push beyond what is known into new creative territory.” Tapping into this passion for experimentation, my take on resin art pushes the boundaries of what others have done. Resin fusion combines numerous media into the resin creating an entirely new medium. My resulting works create three-dimensional illusions that challenge the viewer to reconcile what they see within material that is actually smooth and credit card thin.
