I have no agendas in my artwork, work best when alone in my quiet studio. Plants and houses appear in much of my work, both 2D and 3D in bright colors.
My work in recent years generally consists of doing a mixed-media approach to art: printmaking as a base (especially monotypes), with elements of other work I've done; handmade paper, abstract painting, alternative photography (cyanotypes) added. I usually machine stitch these collage pieces.
I have taught these techniques at my FOGBELT STUDIO since 1996. I've given demonstrations of printmaking in local collages, libraries, studios, and galleries. I have always felt strongly about bringing art and creativity into the community.
