Tanglewood and the surrounding area of Weedon Island preserve is my backyard. My husband and I often go out on our kayaks and fishing boat very early in the morning or at sunset. I find great peace and serenity in nature. The ever changing world of land and sea scape continue to inspire me.

This series of abstracts are made of Acrylic paint that is first painted on a surface other than canvas. Once the painting is finished it is then pealed off and then mounted on Archival paper. Often times I go back and paint on them again after they have been mounted.
Some of these are unmounted as they can be framed between two pieces of Plexiglas so that they can be viewed from either side. Thye look much like stained glass at that point.

These Mono prints are on BFK 100% Archival paper using Acrylic paint, India ink and watercolor. I have always had an affinity for Ancient Asian art, especially landscape scrolls. This series came along after a trip to China. There were about 16 in this sereis and there are just a few left.
These pieces are made of pigmented unbeached Flax and Abaca paper pulp that I made from tree bark and other natural materials.

This collection is based on my mentor whose name was Arthur Deshaies. I worked with him through out my four years in college. His sense of color and composition has stuck with me. This collection ranges in medium from Acrlic skins to pulp painting.
