I love to play with a variety of materials when I’m creating artwork!  If my original prints don’t live up to my expectations, I alter them into a totally new composition.

Sometimes an original prints will sit in a drawer for a couple of years before I figure out what direction to follow. Every January through March I pull out all my misfit children and turn them into totally new compositions, usually collages / mixed media.

I believe that the artwork is waiting for me to develop my skills  and that’s when the magic happens!  It helps having an open mind and the courage to destroy one piece of artwork to make exciting discoveries and push my boundaries!

My first choice for this book was KODIAK STRIPPER  but I thought that might give people the wrong idea about what might be hiding between the covers of my book!
The Kodiak bears are very good at stripping the bark off the tree’s and the cubs have  even destroyed a few tree’s in both the JP Adler Kodiak Bear Exhibit and the Bear Woods Habitat Area.
My new book “BRANCH MANAGEMENT” can be purchased this Saturday, December 16th from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, at the Marshfield Mercantile located at 355 S. Central Ave. Marshfield, WI. I will also have the rest of my Kodiak Bear merchandise (coasters, journals, cards and books) as well as my limited edition greeting cards, art journals and a selection small original prints / collages. 
Prices range from $3.00 to $30.00. Please stop by and take a peek at the section of artwork and photographs that range from the documentation of the two rescued Kodiak bear cubs to original and reproduction prints. 20171106_195341
“BRANCH MANAGEMENT” offers the reader 20 pages of photographs documenting the growth and development of Marshfield’s beloved Kodiak bear cubs (Munsey and Boda).  The photographs depict the close relationship the Kodiak bears have with trees.

The weather conditions couldn’t of been better for Munsey and Boda to enjoy an early afternoon roll in the snow!  At times it looked as tho the Kodiak brothers might of had a snowball fight, as Boda’s face appeared to of been splattered with a huge snowball!

The boys were extremely active when I stopped by to visit them, as they wrestled around in the fresh snow and explored the slushy ice pond in the Bear Woods.

These photographs were taken on Monday Dec.11th around 12:30 -1:30 pm.  My hands began to get very cold after about 30 minutes of exposure to the elements but the bears seemed comfortable playing around in the 20 degree weather.  Munsey’s weight is 680 lbs. and Boda’s weight is now 760 lbs.

It appears that Munsey (standing over Boda) has defiantly learned a few new wrestling moves from watching “Animal Plant”! Munsey was holding his own whenever I’ve observed them wrestling!

I’ve created dance themed artwork to honor my families love of dance! My  father is a graduate from Arthur Murray School for Ballroom  Dance in Chicago. So my parents were avid Ballroom Dancers. My daughter Katherine is a former student of Main Street Conservatory of Dance. She is also a former Dance Choreographer for the Wisconsin State 4-H Showcase Singers.  So the art of dancing has always been in my blood!
