Medium: Acrylic/Mixed Media
Web Site: www.conniejanney.com
I have always been creating in one form or another. I started with oils in high school and then moved to acrylic when attending art school. I have worked in many mediums including oils, acrylics, watercolor, collage, clay, wax carving for bronze sculptures and jewelry, large plaster sculptures and paper mache'. My current work evolved from my design drawings using various markers and pens. I have always been drawn to folk art because of the symbolism, bright colors and whimsy, consequently, I think my work has a folk art and feel. I am a mixed media artist but I design all the papers I use in my work making it very unique. I have also written and illustrated a childrens book titled the Most Extraordinary Farm, which is about manafesting your dreams.
My goal is not to try and recreate nature but to create the spirit of nature as it manifests through my creative energy. I believe in infinite possibilities and think of my work as joyful, whimsical, and fun. My hope is that others find joy and fun as well. I design all the papers used in my collages and collage paintings.
