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 are wonderful hosts I look forward to working with them again. I will be returning to Wing Tip Press in 2015 to teach two workshops in mid May and enjoy a residency. Port Townsend Washington will be my next stop with the NPS September 26th - October 2nd. 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. 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.
