February Demonstrator — Colleen Wiessmann – Abstract Mixed Media
Colleen Wiessmann is a working artist whose studio is in Seabrook Island, SC. As an artist, she sees her goal as making us look beyond the surface and feel the emotions hiding within her paintings. She applies acrylics, wax, inks and various textured materials in multiple layers on canvas to create her works. She uses emotions, creative instincts, and memories in her process that allows ever changing layers by painting over, printing, rubbing out, and repainting surfaces on her canvas. She adds texture with various mediums, fabric, paper and foils. Her works hang in corporate and private collections.
She uses a common palette of acrylic paints for most of her paintings.
Colleen’s energetic presentation made us feel like we can have the freedom to try her technique; although it would be only a special few who could achieve Colleen’s level of expertise in abstract mixed media. What a fun-filled evening with such a creative mind!
