During the July Northwoods Art Tour, I had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people that traveled from Chicago, Milwaukee, the Twin Cities and Canada!


I definitely couldn’t have successfully participated in this art tour without the help of my wonderful friend and my fantastic husband!


My goal is to create artwork that beckons to both the viewer’s eye and sense of touch.






I was honored to receive an award through the participation of the Range Art Association for my original hand pulled print titled “On The Rocks”.


During the Art Tour, I created and demonstrated the art of Intaglio Printmaking. I printed a series of small original hand pulled prints titled “Symphony of Leaves”. The series consists of about 20,  4″x 6″ prints, printed on Rives BFK paper.




Here are just a few photographs from this past weekends guests participating in the NORTHWOODS ART TOUR.  Thank you to all my guests that stopped in to learn about Intaglio Printmaking.  Thanks to my family members and friends that helped me during the art tour.  Thank you to Sharon Drawz, Allie and Scott Wendlandt and my husband Doug. I couldn’t of opened my art studio and participated in the tour without all of your help!  Thank you from the bottom of heart!  Allie, thank you for taking all of these wonderful photographs of the art studio during my demonstrations and visiting with the our guests.

This weekend during the art tour I will have a large selection of artwork on exhibit and for sale.  There are over 200 cards of two rescued Kodiak bear cubs as well as 5 x 7 and 8 x 10 photographs and two different photographic books celebrating the first 15 months of the two Kodiak cubs.

In addition to the photography and books on the rescued Kodiak cubs I also have artwork that celebrates their survival in the format of collages and a charcoal drawing.  This series can be purchased in as an original or in a card format or reproduction print.

“Leap of Faith” is a series of seven compositions that honors the families with autism and can be purchased as cards and 5 x 7 and 8 x 10 reproductions prints.  The more fluid piece of artwork is derived from some fun experimental art projects that in it’s original size is about 1″ x 1 1/2″ in size and can’t be seen without the use of a slide a projector.


I invite you to explore the diversity of artwork showcased at my art studio on July 29-30-31. To learn more about the north woods art tour go to   northwoodsarttour.com

I’ve been preparing for the upcoming 2016 NORTHWOODS ART  TOUR which will be held on July 29th,30th and 31st.  The art studio will be open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm each of those days.  At this time I will not be able to take credit cards due to some technical difficulties.

iMAGiNETHAT! Art Studio is listed as #14 on the self guided tour map.  My artwork is very diverse in medium and the subject matter always represents a mixture of the spirited girl from Chicago with a sprinkling of the Wisconsin North Woods life style.

During the art tour I will be demonstrating printmaking on my Intaglio Printing Press  and I look forward to answering any of your questions in regards to my original prints as well as the background stories behind the creations of my charcoal drawings, collages, assemblages and photography.

I hope you’ll stop in and explore the unique artwork at iMAGiNETHAT! Art Studio located five miles north of Woodruff  and 1.2 miles north of Lakeland Airport ,  just off of North Farming Road, first driveway on Bayer Lake Road.

I just finished my first charcoal drawing of Munsey and I’ve started to work on the next  charcoal drawing, which is of Boda.   Most of the charcoal drawing is created with powered charcoal and feathers.  the feathers work very well for making subtractive and additive mark making.  I love using feathers because they don’t leave as sharp and controlled of mark on my paper when I’m drawing.  I also create three layers of marks when creating the bears fur coat.  When it comes to drawing I hyper focus on producing extremely detailed work in my compositions.

This summer my Kodiak Bear charcoal drawings , greeting cards, photography and photographic books will be for sale, along with my Intaglio prints, collages, lamp-worked beads and assemblages at my art studio during the 2016 North-Woods Studio Tour.aDSC_9099 copy 15-11-10

For the past five years I’ve been participating in the International Collage and Exchange held in New Zealand and orchestrated by Dale Copeland. This is the link to learn more about the International Collage Exchange and Sale. http://outofsight.co.nz/Dale/collage.htm

The artwork and information posted under this heading are a sample of the six collages that I entered in the 2014 International Collage Exchange and Sale.

Title : Legato:

The collage is created from textile as the background. I’ve incorporated an experimental drawing under the reproduction image printed onto a plastic sheet as the mid-ground of the composition. The dancers and small square and rectangles formations are sections from two different original Intaglio prints which I applied as the foreground of the composition. I added the dancers in such an arrangement to play with the formations in an interesting arrangement to create more visual interest to the compositions.

I decided to use a music term for my title because I often incorporate sheet music when creating original Intaglio prints that incorporate into my collages
and other artwork.
