From the Studio

July is the month I make the decision if I'm going to have a Outdoor Studio Exhibit. The answer to that is, "Yes!"  I've also made the decision to stop Tack Down Tuesday's come the first of August.  I  have been doing this for 6 years.  Hard to believe but there comes a time when you just need to switch things up for yourself.
I will continue to put out a newsletter but not every week. Hard decisions sometimes but it's time to move on with other projects and ideas.

Floating Collage Workshop this weekend at Naperville Fine Art Center and Gallery so excited to meet new people and share the process.

  Tack Down Tuesday 


#071017-A, "Mindful Moment" Collage on 4 5/8” x 12” plywood ready to hang on you wall.


Materials Used: Plywood, painted, polymer medium, acrylics, painted Kraft paper, dyed handmade paper,  stenciling, graphite pencil, splattering with acrylics, glazing, sealed with a layer of UV satin varnished.


Meaning behind the art: Thinking about area’s in my life that need a bit of switching up.  One of them is the surfaces that I work on.  I usually work on watercolor paper and transfer it over to wood panels.  This time I decided to go in my one storage area and use a piece of plywood. Having a flashback when I went to Door County WI and dropped off some artwork at one of the galleries there I spent my mornings stacking rocks. I had found some of the paper in my other storage space and put the too together.  There is only two pieces of paper that are torn and one flipped over for the use of the back side as a third color.
