Virginia, United States
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.

I got involved with Green Door 's International Print Exchange. I like challenges and accept quite a few of them ranging from jewelry making, collage, and now printmaking.

I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the simplicity of the wood block prints.
Wood block printing can be quite involved, especially when you get into layers and different colors, etc. For this project I created just a simple black and white image of 'Jazz' my now 14 year old cat who loves the garden.

This piece is called, Resemblance of Flowers.

I thought this image was appropriate to post because this morning, upon waking and stepping outside for my morning coffee, I noticed the tall phlox and cone flowers were gone. ....
There is a very hungry doe that lives nearby. (It makes me sad to she her all skin and bones.) Apparently, she decided to come in a little closer last night and have a midnight snack...I hope the pruned flowers will come back.....I also hope she finds other foliage in the woods to feed on...
