Moving in water

This piece takes me on board a sailboat, ducking the masts as we sail through the waters of Puget Sound.

Island inspiration

Although I'm not aware of any lighthouses on the island where I live, this piece reminds me of the pale lights that appear in the  moist  atmosphere of darkness around the waterfront.

I'm back!

I broke my wrist during the holidays and have not been able to post or do my art.  So glad to be healed and with new inspiration, I'm ready for a new series of monotypes.  This one was part of The Roby-King December show.  It was an exciting attempt to see how deep of a red I could create ( go to the very middle of the piece).

Structure and light

The powerful misted morning surrounds the bold monoliths of Stonehenge. Maybe its my ancestry, but I swear I can feel the wet light at daybreak.

The ancients revisited

This piece evokes for me the powerful structure of the ancient site and  it's multi-layered messages.The print will be included in the Roby-King December show.

Getting ready for December show

Here is one of my new pieces for the Roby-King Miniature Show in December on Bainbridge Island.  This geometric version of a butterfly still carries a sense of lightness and delicacy due to the transparencies in the print.

More Work to come

Thank you for your inquiries.  There will be more of my new work soon.  In the meantime, take a look at or go to the show if you're in the area.  It is the invitational printmakers show.   Hope you enjoy it!

Being Clear

A few days ago I saw the Picasso exhibit at The Seattle Art Museum.  It is an amazing show.  The thing I find most inspiring about Picasso, other than his incredible vision and skill, is his commitment to each subject.  This is what I was feeling as I worked on this print.

Subtle and Bold

This piece is a play between subtle shading and bold line, creating an effect that looks like a dance to me.

Inspiration Coming Through

This piece speaks to me of the intimate connection artists have with their creative expression.
The musician and the instrument are literally merging. The music is part of the musician.
