Latest Work

It dawned on me that I have no more room to store any more pictures. I can’t go on, day after day, creating pictures. True most are housed in mixed media note books. In my closet are thirteen of them stashed here and there on the shelves I installed in there to hold my painting supplies. The last book is still on the table with maybe only a couple pages left to fill.

I enjoy sitting at my table early in the morning deciding what story to tell in my graphic diary or what colors and shapes I find in my collection of pictures torn from magazines or calendars to make another collage. I need another book but do I get one? This has to stop, sad to say, or I need to clean out my collections.

So I pulled out a stack of paintings, acrylic or watercolor, to decide what to do with them. Are they worthy to be framed or what I selected some that were very colorful to use in make some cards. I enjoy scanning the picture for smaller ones using a paper frame, 4 x 6 inches. And I do find some pictures more interesting that the whole large picture. I outline the frame, then with my huge scissors I cut them out, glue upon the one sheet cards. I make tiny framed paintings which I can attach an envelope and create a card to sell.

I'm an artist, writer and author of nine children's books. Nature is my inspiration. Next project is a book of a hike with children. The pictures are created out of fabric scraps.
