PAINTINGS ~ DRAWINGS ~ JEWELRY ~ FIBER ART by MARJORIE CRAWFORD
"My work is offered as a joyous expression of creation and perhaps as an alternative approach to viewing our world.
Exploring our connection with the natural and magical worlds through abstracted imagery and color.
Painting in multicolored layers, using layering and scratching through of paint as a metaphor for the life cycles of laying down something new, and breaking through, or transformation.
Being interested in that which cannot be readily seen, juxtaposing abstracted images of trees, windows, suns, leaves, hearts and angels, in hope of catching the essence of being, the magic of creation and the splendor and energetic intelligence of the universe."
Original Paintings, Drawings, Jewelry Art & Other Creative Works are available for sale.
