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 print 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 to have an open mind and the courage to destroy one piece of artwork to make exciting discoveries and push my boundaries!

To my surprise, I discovered that some styles of cork board create an interesting print because of it’s irregular textured surface.

You can take the girl out of the Chicago but you can’t take the Chicago spirit out of the girl!  That pretty much describes what motivates my edgier style of artwork.

(above)  Child’s Play was a problematic/naughty creation that had taken me three years to create.  It began as a collagraph print that went rogue on me, so I tucked it away in a drawer for a few years. As time went by,  I had grown and evolved as an artist. So when I found the collagraph print, I knew exactly what to do with it, to make it into an interesting composition.

(below) This composition titled BILLIE  is created with handmade paper.   The paper pulp was applied to a free-form mold.  Once the pulp had dried I applied a variety of permanent metallic paints and mounted the sculpture onto a wood background that’s covered with fabric.  Please stop in the studio to find out why this composition was given this title!

(below) The series title SNAP has a special story connected to my dear childhood friend that inspired me to create artwork using a very unusual method.  Please stop in the studio and ask me to tell you the story behind this artwork!

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