Workshop Overview

This is a hands on dynamic mixed media workshop. We will paint and make marks on a variety of papers, creating an expansive library of colorful painted papers. We will paint loose compositions on wood substrates, then incorporate our painted papers on our prepared surfaces, adding snippets of collage fodder for added punch. Using the Sitka landscape as our inspiration, we will create abstracted landscapes with a focus on value, color, composition, design and a playful, curious spirit.

About the Instructor(s)

Dayna's fiery red hair sets the tone for how she makes her art and lives her life. She is an energetic, intuitive, abstract painter working in oil and cold wax. She loves experimenting with texture, layers and color, likening her paintings to going on an archaeological dig.

She paints intuitively and abstractly, laying down bold swaths of color in oil paint mixed with cold wax, then going back in, scraping, layering, adding, subtracting, refining the composition and finally discovering the story buried in the paint. She loves making marks using oil pigment sticks, graphite, or by scratching into the surface with a sharp object, each mark reflecting her eclectic personality. She is an energetic teacher and provides a safe place for students to experiment and learn new techniques.
