This past year has flown by with a busy summer schedule and now we are down to the final two shows of the year. The Holiday Art Exhibit at the Shack Art Center is the annual holiday exhibit featuring two-dimensional works by members of the artist guild, Seattle Co-Arts, as well as a diverse selection of pottery and glass by regional artists. The Best of Northwest Show has everything from jewelry, designer clothing and paintings to works of glass, metal, wood, clay by many of the regions fine art and craft artists.
I will be at the Best of the Northwest Spring Art Show featuring some new pieces and designs. "Fragments" is a group of story vignettes reminiscent of a tapestry fragment or part of a story. Each piece starts with pile of clear chipped scrap glass in random shaped heaps which is then heated in the kiln until it becomes a flat one of a kind shape. I trace part of an image onto the glass with glass powder paste filling in the shapes with hand mixed colors. The image is fired in the kiln twice to produce a unique story.
My "Topo" design refects the topographical landscape changes on the earth. Each design is hand-colored with mixed frits to create bright gradients of color. I have posted new pieces in the "New Work" gallery and have added another gallery showing an overview of my process in "Making Waves".
Welcome to my website. I am excited to share with you my artwork and my inspirations. Please browse my site. I would love for you to share your feedback/comments. Expect the site to change over time as I tweak the layout and add new content.
I am a Pacific NW artist working out of my home studio with my dog Moby at my side (except when I run some of my saws or grinders- he is not a fan of loud noises). I am fortunate every day to have the time and space to spend my energy to create things I love. I look forward to sharing this adventure with you.
