Marcia Petty

I have created art or craft in some form my entire life. After retiring as a technical writer and editor, I have enjoyed expanding my art horizons. My paintings evolve as I work, because at least half the time I begin with the materials and not with an image in mind.

The mixed media paintings seem abstract but have recognizable imagery. There’s often whimsy and sometimes an open or hidden message about the environment or living creatures besides humans. After I think a piece is finished, a happy accident or change in view may keep me working on it. I have a modest number of awards from local shows, have been selected for juried shows, and have art in private collections in the Portland area.

My materials include but are not limited to acrylic paints, colored and graphite pencils, ink, charcoal, water-soluble crayons, hand-painted collage papers, found objects, hand-carved stamps, fabric scraps, and my old paintings. I paint on canvas, paper, and wood. I also take digital photos and modify them on the computer into abstract pieces—as creative as painting and with less cleanup.
