What a busy winter! Summer is here, and I'm rolling up my sleeves to create more art!
The Frame Shop hosts First Friday, and KMXT does a lovely spot on my art!
Having a ball making collages. I'm using acrylic paint to hand tint papers that I then cut up to make my images! I'll make several new prints from the finished pieces and frame up the originals.
One of my pieces has been selected to be in Taku Graphics 2018 Raven Calendar (remember, calendars are printed way in advance...) What a way to start the year. Thank you, Taku Graphics!
Come find my booth at the AAUW Bazaar on Saturday, November 5, from 10 am til 4 pm. I'll be located in my usual, lovely, sunny space upstairs, in the Katurwik Room. That's the small room off the lobby. I'm excited to share my 2017 calendar, my ink and watercolor originals, new cards, and some old stand-bys!
Can't make AAUW? Please contact me, and I'll deliver to you.

This year for the 3rd Annual Altered Book Art Show, I designed a book in memory of our neighbor, Russell. I incorporated pictures, i.d. cards, keys, and tools into one of his books to create a snapshot of how we knew him. Russell belonged to that era of men who came to Alaska in the early days and found their place out here. He lived alone and wanted to be left alone, and Alaska afforded him that.
Art that brings a burst of color to your life!
