Francy Blumhagen has been making mixed media paintings, handmade prints, and collages for about 40 years and has shown her work throughout the Pacific Northwest.
She explains: “My inspirations for my work come from the sights and sounds that surround me everyday as I walk my dogs in the hills and forests and beaches of Whidbey Island.“
Her mixed media includes many kinds of pencils, crayons, acrylic paint, metallic powders, ink, and some wax. The collaging is done with paper she has painted on or marked in a variety of ways, and then cut to fit the imagery. They reflect ideas about what she sees — not literal, but nor are they completely abstract.
Francy received her B.F.A. in painting from the University of Washington in 1982 and studied extensively with Jacob Lawrence, Michael Spafford and Norman Lundin. She works in a variety of media, including block printing, woodcut, collage, and wax resist.
