Bridging our Differences by Kathy Ferguson

Kathy Ferguson

Kathy Ferguson

 

Kathy Ferguson, a mixed media artist living in Colorado and New York City, paints colorful abstract settings that are whimsical, richly layered, and complex. Using combinations of geometric and organic shapes, she creates imaginary worlds using paint, hand-printed papers, and ink. Her colors are often bold and saturated alluding to worlds that are more illusionary than authentic, places more commonly found in dreams than in reality.

While I don’t consider myself an advanced sketcher, my sketches have a way to bring back vivid memories of my trip, much more so than photographs (which I take lots of too 🙂  Sketching requires me to be wholly present while I explore and record my new experiences. After much trial… [Read the rest of the post]

Using an iPad to create painting studies

February 26, 2019
