This piece was a meditation on a theme, based on a technique I picked up and modified slightly in which the pen is drawn from a single point to another edge of a bounding shape (in this case, a flower petal.)

Stained Glass Menagerie. Micron, Gelly Roll Glaze, and Gelly Roll Metallic pens on Strathmore Series 300 Artist Tiles. 8″ x 8″ framed. $320

This piece is a personal favorite, and was a surprising amount of work. It was inspired by the unique look that the Glaze pens give to paper – The ink sits on top of the page, giving it a glossy, glass-like appearance. This makes the resemblance to stained glass really striking in person.

Crazy Contraption. Micron pens on Strathmore Bristol 300 Series Artist Tiles. 6″ x 6″ unframed. NFS

This is a recent ‘going-to-bed’ piece; I’d work on it just before falling asleep. I had it in my head to create a crazy and convoluted device of unknown intent, then fill in around it with abstract elements.
