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