The subjects of my paintings are usually people whom I somehow feel connected.  My subjects are not engaged in dramatic action, they are at home, engaged in actions that connect across time and generations.


Drawings and Illustrations

Drawing it what connects everything; ideas, themes people, and planning. The simple act of trying to draw something can change the way I look at the world. I usually draw before I paint, I love pattern and line the same way I love color and light. My children's illustrations are of memories and experiences. I am interested in how the pictures and the writing move through the pages and make "reading" a visual experience



The process of putting ink onto a block or plate and transferring it to paper is MAGIC! I embrace the surprise.  How will the inks cover and the colors overlay? New tricks and tools are always arising and multiples offer the opportunity to try variations on a larger idea.
