About Lori Axelrod
It is my connection with color and pattern that drew me to polymer clay as the perfect medium for my creative outlet. The intensely saturated colors and the technical details that I can achieve with polymer clay, combined with the wonderful tactile experience of the clay that has me hooked!
Then I started to experiment with all of the mixed media products that I was reading about. They are so fun to work with that I had to find a way to incorporate the polymer clay with the mixed media. Telling myself to conquer my apprehensions and doubt, and lots of play time, I started to find my rhythm.
I love mixed media because there are no boundaries, no limit to what you can use to tell your story. I used the polymer clay flowers and fiber as my focal point and then I layered with gauze, gelato pens, acrylic paint, stamped images, pigment ink, embossing powder and probably some additional media. There are pieces of Angelina fiber which adds the dreamy iridescence near the center of the flowers.
I’m very happy with these pieces but I will continue to read, experiment, play and push my limits to improve my art. Thank you to all of the wonderful artist that have shared their knowledge because it has helped me to find my creative spirit.
