Welcome to my updated art and design website!
Like many artists, I have a number of creative outlets. I do craftwork, fine art, and graphic design. While it takes many forms, all of my work is about celebrating the natural world and its inhabitants.To see my more scientific projects, check out WesternCascades.com.
Last year’s Audubon Society of Portland’s annual Wild Arts Festival was very successful, and I hope to be there again this year in the same booth, #27. For more information about the art fair, visit http://wildartsfestival.org. My hands are still struggling from overuse problems, so I am limiting the amount of sewing I do to keep them from becoming worse. Last year, I was practically sold out by December, so please order early if you’d like to receive bird ornaments by the holiday season.
These are individually hand-sewn and hand-painted felt ornaments of US native birds (although an occasional exotic does sneak in.)
I paint in watercolor, colored pencil, and a combination of the two. Blank greeting cards are available in many designs. Original paintings are available as well. I’ll add those to the website soon.
My graphic work includes newsletters, logos, T-shirt designs, business cards, interpretive signs, brochures, and other types of computer design and illustration.
At the moment I am making twisted wire and bead earrings out of tarnish-resistant silver- and gold-plated and copper wire.
