Doreen Wulbrecht – Irvine, CA
Award winning Artist, Doreen Wulbrecht graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Science.
While attracted to various expressions of love for art, over the years the medium choice was made because of space or time limitations.
An early retirement from the corporate world and a move to a larger home gave me the opportunity to explore Raku Sculptural Ceramics. I fell in love with the balance of technique and serendipity. I loved pushing the limits of the clay and the Raku process. It is a passionate technique!
After 15 years and wanting to learn something new I saw an artist exploring the color field movement and fluid acrylics. I was hooked. Fluid Acrylics on a manipulated canvas became the new passion.
By manipulating un-stretched canvas and layering the mixed paint just right, the results are bold, big and powerful. Again, the balance of technique and serendipity create one of a kind, joyful works of art.
I call my version of this technique, “Fluid Dimensions”.
Since starting this type of art expression, “Summer Solstice Rose” won a 2nd place prize in American Art Awards and an honorable mention in Fusion Art 2018 Artist Choice Awards. “Purple Rain” won a 4th place award in American Art Awards and three other works were finalist in the Fusion Art Competition.
