My acrylic paintings are a modified form of pointillism. I generally don’t overlap my dots (like the original pointillists did); there is a tiny space around each dot that allows the (usually black) underpainting to show through. The contrast of the colored dots and the underpainting make my paintings shimmer.
"I was smitten with the first dot artwork I’d seen that was done by a fellow artist; I knew I had to try it myself. I hope people viewing my work feel something similar. I want to capture their imagination; I want them to wonder: how did she do that?"
