Art & Soul Gallery Following the Circuitous Thread: Mixed Media Paintings by Eve Margo Withrow

I take great delight in creating one-of-a-kind paintings using mixed media and collage materials. My paintings are magical, surrealistic, impressions reflecting the essential feeling ingredients of an experience or place. Many of my favorite and most exciting works are the result of finding creative solutions to things run amok a few times over. I play and adventure with my expressions, following threads here and there, thus entering the flow of my creative process; head and heart awake and in balance. – Eve Margo Withrow
