  • Biography
    I live on a farm in North Idaho.  I grow flowers and vegetables which find their way into my art! I'm happiest when I can work in my garden, cook in my kitchen, and draw and print my art!  
    I started doing linocuts because they fit into my lifestyle.  I love the whole process.  First, I draw the radish, garlic, poppy pod, etc., onto the linoleum.  Then, I cut it out.  All of this I can do at my kitchen table.
    Then, I ink up my linocut with an oil-based ink, put a thick Italian paper over it, and put it through the small press that is out in the shed.  That's the whole process.  Sometimes, I go back over the image with watercolor, but I love a simple black and white image.
    My imagery is usually about nature because that's my life.  I grew up on a farm, and I live on one now. My sense of rootedness and well-being derive from this attachment to the soil I work with.

    Event: Endangered Birds: Portraits

    Dates: Dec. 1, 2016 - Dec. 30, 2016

    Venue: Wingtip Press, 500 W. Idaho Street Suite 220 Boise, ID

    Twenty-six, hand-painted linocut prints of birds on the endangered list, found in the US and around the world. The images are all 13X13 in 15X15 black frames. The images are close-up bird portraits with a graphic, decorative, contemporary look

    Event: Birds and Flowers at Colter's Creek!

    Dates: March 30, 2015 - April 30, 2015

    Venue: Colter's Creek Winery, Juliaetta, Idaho

    I have about 12 endangered birds and another 12 prints of flowers and vegetables hanging at this beautiful venue on the river! Colter's Creek Winery is an incredible little winery that opened a year or so ago in Juliaetta, this quaint little town on the Potlatch River. Mike and Melissa, the owners, have created a lovely little oasis for wine, food and art lovers! Their wines are wonderful, their tapas-sized plates of munchables are perfect parings for the wine, and my birds and flowers look at home on the original brick walls! Yay!! I'm so happy to exhibit there!
