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!

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.

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!

Below are some images of collages and prints and drawings inspired by two Kodiak bear cubs that reside at the Wildwood Zoo in Marshfield, Wisconsin.  The series of artwork is titled “WALKABOUT”.

(above) Title: “Munsey”   Charcoal drawing of a Kodiak bear cub. This drawing was created with powdered charcoal.  The powdered charcoal was added and subtracted with a feather.  The feather was especially useful when creating the longer tufts of fur on the bear.

Many of these images are also for sale as a reproduction print and greeting cards.
