New Update!

Still in the process, but I thought I would upload an image before I went home for the holiday.

In progress

This piece is what I am currently working on and the last picture I am putting up this morning. She is coming along slowly, but will be worth the wait.


This is also out of my current body of work. It was inspired by my art students and their amazing ability to change the persona they wear depending on who they are around. Like most people, you never really see what that person hides inside. It is like wearing an elaborate mask.

More recent work

This piece is out of my current body of work. It is a highly symbolic piece, that I view as a self portrait.

Lady in Blue

I started this collage over a year ago, and obviously haven't finished it yet. It happens to be one of those pieces that I come back to over and over, and then lay aside once something else catches my attention. She is done on a found piece of Masonite board which already had spray paint on it. She doesn't even have an official title. I will post additional pictures of her as I come back to her over time. I'm not sure if she will ever be done, because I enjoy the idea of having one piece that I can always add to. She grows as I grow.

First paper collage

I am putting my pictures up in order, oldest to newest, after I have cropped and made them presentable. The first is titled Mary takes the stage; her last performance. I have grown since this piece in knowledge of symbolism and in technique. The piece is made completely up of magazine images, and ink drawn into the background. I still love this piece for the grieving process it allowed me to go through while creating it. It was the entrance into the world of allegories, and the building block from which my other pieces are derived. Enjoy!

Back to work!

I am finally getting back into the daily routine of working on my art. My husband, Nick, is settled into his art teaching job, which leaves me more time to put into creating. I don't currently have pictures of my new work, but will try and get images up as soon as possible.
