My work celebrates the spirit of the people and places I have encountered. I find myself combining the past and present on a routine basis in my work. The stories I have been witness to, the beauty I have encountered and the decay of the previously celebrated: all find a home in my heart and art. My work has been described asvisual haikuI am an independent artist/printmaker/educator from the North Texas region who believes in taking time out to look and listen. Wingtip Press in Boise Idaho and the Nature Printing Society in North Carolina are wonderful hosts I look forward to working with them again. I will be returning to Wing Tip Press in 2015 to teach a workshop and enjoy a residency. Port Townsend Washington will be my next stop with the NPS in September 2015. The Santa Fe Art Workshop held August 16-21st at Adobe Abode B and B was a smash hit. A big thank you to all who participated as well as a thank you to the staff at the Palace Print shop in Santa Fe for welcoming us into the studio. Three cheers for letterpress. November 7th-9th was an amazing time in Salt Lake City teaching a whiteline workshop. I have an invitation to return in 2015. Time to break out the woollies. I am offering print, jewelry and adult drawing workshops at my studio in McKinney. Keep posted to see updates. I have added a drawing class to my roster. Now you may either sign up for the 4:30PM-6PM or 6:30-8 PM class on Tuesdays. Easy PayPal sign up is accessed through my portfolio page. Yellow tulips then press on the cost of the class.
