 “Pictures have a double reality-objects in their own right and representing quite different objects in a different space and time.”

    -Richard Gregory,

British psychologist 


My artmaking has been about discovering beauty. I  work in painting, clay sculpture, and a new form of printmaking, clay mono prints. In clay monotypes, I overlay textures creating a lively surface.


I look for visual connections: 

concentric  ripples of water relate to growth ridges on the mussel shell;  branching veins on an iris petal morph down into a waterfall;  the pages of a fat open book are like arching bird wings. 


I have been an art teacher, art curator in Alaska and written 2 art books.
