- I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.

makes for more creative time.
The driveway is now shoveled, well, at least good enough to get out if I have to.
All the chores are done, soup and whole wheat bread is made.
Time to create more monotypes...
Since I ran out of clayboard, I had to fumble around for a comparable substrate. I gessoed some 8" x 8" cradled masonite panels and decided that would work. While they worked quite well, they also had a different absorbtion and textural rate than the clayboard. I was pleased with the outcome!
