I incorporate nature and animals and all my favorite things, into my printmaking. My home is surrounded by forests and wildlife, where I draw inspiration for my prints. Most of my prints are not “realistic” but playful and contain a large dose of my imagination and humor. I choose to hand color many of of the images so I can experiment with how color can change a picture.
My art studio is situated by forests, rivers and a bird sanctuary, and I use these surroundings to influence my prints. I have been an outdoor enthusiast all my life, and the majority of my art reflects my love for all creatures, big and small. By surrounding myself in natures beauty, I am inspired to create playful images; my prints are not “photo” like by any means, but I attempt to create a painterly quality to them.
Since my retirement from teaching nursing I dedicate much of days in the studio with my posse, Phoebe the Dog and Joey the Cat (one on my feet, the other laying under my carving board and on my lap). Chandler the goldfish took a trip over the toilet rainbow. With my assistants I spend many hours creating prints that represent the natural world, Mother earths beautiful creations.
