Ila Maria, 1987

These works were done between 1975 and 2002 in oils, pencil, watercolour, pen and ink, etching, ink and bleach, and airbrushed acrylics. For the latter I developed a technique of transparent layers of pure colour, for submarine paintings after moving to French Polynesia in 1995. The following selections were chosen to provide a range of aesthetics that touched me in some way, but little of my art is digitally recorded.
Artistic output, numbers estimated:
pen and ink drawings: 85
water colours : 500
oil paintings : 50
acrylic paintings: 85
airbrushed paintings : 30
portraits : 300
etchings:16 editions of 80 hand-done prints each
off-set lithographies: 40 editions of 100 to 500 each
art cards: 66 editions of 500 to 1000 each
Most of my work was published in and distributed from Canada under my former name of Ila Maria.
