I am a fine art printmaker, balancing my time between Door County WI and the Chicago Loop.  I have studied a wide variety of printmaking and encaustic techniques with many artists in an effort to hone my own painterly style.  I find that working on a series of multiples or on variable editions encourages happy accidents. My monotypes experiment with color and overlapping, organic and linear layers that inform one another and explore relationship. 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.

My work has been featured in several juried shows in the Chicago area including the annual Her Voice Shows at Expressions Graphics from 2017 to 2020 and at the Oak Park Library Art Gallery in January 2016.  I have also been active in Door County, Wisconsin during the last ten years.  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.
