- 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.

Peaceful Waters ink drawing on recycled paper (C)
Spring...spring is around the corner.
One of the most amazing changes signaling spring is observed in the ponds around me.
The cloudy, grey, murk slowly emerges into a colorful place ready for the frogs to re-emerge and sing, peeping their spring songs for all the hollar to hear.
The birds come to sip the fresh spring waters.
Color is reflected from the seeds and bulbs planted in the fall, along with the spring skies splattered with the baby green fronds of new growth shooting from the sepia bark of winter on to the waters surface.
Not as cold, echoing the harsh staccato music of winter, the creek water is peaceful, making it's soulful music once more as it flows over the rocks.
Life emerges again.
