My Art is in a Boutique!

This August I went through a bit of a rut. I felt my writing had become blocked and a specific writing project had me feeling disappointed and upset (more on that soon!). Much has progressed since then! I am incredibly excited to share photos of my fine art prints, framed and on exhibit at a […]

“Spirit Vines” 2 Collagraphs

I will never forget when I pulled these two separate collagraphs off of the press. I showed a printmaking instructor, who was there managing the studio, and her response was, “what a world you are creating.” I loved that idea! It has stayed with me ever since. She was right too.

I’d next print my set of wing collagraphs (as used in my bat-owl-cat collagraph, see below) […]

I am just now deciding to relax about the progress of this project and space ~ this presentation of my art and artistic projects. Nothing need be “written in stone” (and how can it truly be in this digital era?!) This website and blog will undoubtedly morph and transform alongside my art, interests and creative […]

A Brief Introduction (for now)

In a quiet, calm, internally serene and focused moment, I sometimes feel a tug from the recesses of my mind and a whispering from deep within. Images of pseudomythical creatures peer out, raising their heads and presenting to me their would be figures. I reminisce about Native American Totem Poles from my upbringing in Seattle. […]
