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.

Fall is on the Way

"Yarrow" (C) ink drawing on recycled paper

Can you feel the morning...
as the afternoon sun drifts behind the mountains? 
Fall is in the air.

Completed Wall

Well, it took three days to finish the wall. 
Next, dirt, flowers, and mulch are next. 
Then I can sit. 

Planted and mulched.

Design Day

     I had planned to create multiple color prints for the IPE, but I took advantage of a day with low humidity to begin a project in the back yard. I had designed a walkway and plan for a wall so folks could walk around the house instead of going up the hill and down the maze to the back sitting area. 

     The area I am re-landscaping is the area to the left of the studio door. Eventually, it will be all pea sized river rock and will become a walkway to the other side of the house....which is another project developing in my head. 

     For now, I am posting the before photo. I will post a follow up as soon as I get things halfway in place. Right now, I am just moving lots and lots of dirt!

     The prints will happen later in the week.
