    WHAT I'VE DONE
    RECENT SHOWS

    My monotypes and monoprints experiment with overlapping organic and linear layers that inform one another and explore the dynamic beauty of relationship. I most enjoy working on a series of multiples or on variable editions, encouraging happy accidents.  Additionally I enjoy building the texture of collagraph prints by using found objects and inking one plate with both intaglio and relief techniques.  Abstracting my surrounding landscape is a primary focus, particularly the Niagara Escarpment, which connects me to our daughter Mamie in Stratford Ontario.

    I am a fine art printmaker, active in Door County WI and the Chicago Loop.  The many confinements of these past many months pushed me to expand my boundaries.  I am delighted to be exhibiting a relief print in the Awagami International Miniature Print Exhibition this summer 2021.   All prints in this exhibition are presented on Japanese washi paper, recently designated a UNESCO intangible cultural heritage craft.  I have studied a wide variety of printmaking and encaustic techniques with many artists in an effort to hone my own painterly style. My work has been featured in several juried shows in the Chicago area including the Her Voice Shows at Expressions Graphics from 2017 - 2020 and at the Oak Park Library Art Gallery in January 2016.   My collagraph monoprint  “Bert” was selected for the Purchase Award from the 53rd Annual Juried Exhibit at The Hardy Gallery in 2015. In 2014 I was invited to decorate an egg using upcycled materials, “Last One In,” for the EGGstravaganza in Egg Harbor and celebrated the whimsy of this fundraising community art event.
