Brave students and creative experiments from my two encaustic workshops at Schack Art Center (Everett, WA) in August! Way to go gals!


Sold, but not forgotten...

 Well, I just completed this very personal piece, and, yes, it SOLD!. The title is "The Dream: Release", and the vision did come to me in a dream. And yes, I am fantasizing about "escape" and "release" lately (how selfish of me)! This was done in encaustic with graphite, oil pastel, metallic powders and glass "threads". The squares are all done with hand-made stencils and are "raised" from the surface. Time to do another one! Hope you enjoy...

Thanks to Alex Strazzanti of Seattle for your beautiful (and quick) professional photos!


In the studio...

Ongoing work in the studio! These are "detail" shots of ongoing, sea-themed encaustic work I am pursuing in the studio. My main inspiration? My trip to gorgeous Loreto, Mexico in March. The desert-meets-Sea of Cortez colors, awesome sea life and natural elements. The TEXTURES there are mind-blowing, begging to be included in encautic wax! More work to come...


It's official! My NEW summer encaustic classes at Schack Art Center are open for registration...

Check out my NEW summer encaustic classes at Schack Art Center! Photo Imagery II (June 7 & 8), Extreme Encaustic Basics (Aug. 9) and Encaustic Collage: Natural Elements (Aug. 10)! I can already smell the beeswax!



Just dreaming...Viva Mexico!

Our warm Seattle weather, birdsong, buzzing bees and Cinco de Mayo all reminding me of the gentle atmosphere, people and landscape of Loreto, Mexico...

Incredible Book Arts show at Schack Art Center!

I have several pieces in this show, all dear to my heart (as most artist books are). This show is just stunning, with so many examples (from many talented book artists) of what a "Book" can become. Area K-12 students will be able to take it all in through Schack Art Center's sponsored program of field trips, put on by our education director, Nancy Bell. Don't miss it! The show runs through May 28.

Schack Art Center is located at 2921 Hoyt, Everett, WA. For more information, please visit www.schack.org

Reflecting on Nature's beauty...

As the sun goes down on this beautiful day in Seattle, reflecting on the beautiful sunrises in Mexico...in Loreto, Baja California Sur.

Wish I were there...again.


A day in the life of an art instructor...

Students from my encaustic collage class today at Schack Art Center. All were visiting from Trinity Lutheran College...wonderful energy! Exhausting, really. Well worth the effort!


Images form a recent adventure in Loreto, Mexico in the state of Baha California Sur. Awesome, rugged landscape and history. The tortillas were the best I've ever eaten...
