Study with Gerald Brommer-Collage

Both of these works were completed during a workshop with Mr. Brommer. It was an honor to meet Mr. Brommer and exciting to try some new techniques through his instruction. Some of Mr. Brommer's work can be viewed at the link noted.

Handmade Journal

This handmade book became a very important part of my life in 2005. I
wrote all of the calligraphic verses while undergoing chemo for lung cancer.
These verses say it all.

Natural Fibers

These two fiber pieces were created shortly after the death of my mother to cancer. Both were my expression of dealing with that grief in different ways.

This piece is looking toward the future...

This piece is taking it day to day-the different stages of grief.

Still Life

Scratchboard is always fun with the students.


Block Print - School Example

This is one of my etchings from my illustration days.

Handmade Books

As I said-I like too many kinds of art. These are just a few of the many examples of handmade books from handmade paper that I have made-mostly in school but some as gifts.

Gone Fishing

I love to fish-have since I was little-which inspired this weaving.
