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!

I will 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. 

Buck’n the System just sounded like a fun title, especially since the artwork has bucks as a theme.

I’ve printed about 25 of  each of these little original prints and added water color to enhance the composition.

While traveling this past weekend to Wisconsin Dells to attend  an office Christmas party, I packed my art bag and brought a portfolio full of small prints to work on during the drive.  These are a sample of two of the prints that I water colored during the car ride to the Dells.
