Cover Art

My artwork is on the Summer 2011 cover of the magazine Exponent II.  
 Two of my intaglio prints were also featured inside the magazine.  What a pleasure it was to receive this in the  mail a few days ago.

Made to Move

A small recent drawing titled, Plunge, will be included in the Made to Move art show which is a 3 art production, artist collective with Leah Gauthier, Sara Jones and Andrea Wenglowskyj.  The small exhibition will be shown in under served places such as hospitals, libraries, prisons, etc.  Each artwork will be smaller than five inches to expedite the moving of the work.

I found it difficult to create something so small because I usually like to work much larger.  It was a challenge and I am so glad to be a part of the Made to Move exhibition.

Plunge: graphite, watercolor, acrylic, and spray paint on rag paper, 5" X 4.5 "

 I found a book from my childhood last time I visited my parents house.  Inspired by some of the illustrations in the book of underground burrows, I began drawing a subterranean world.
 Surrounded within a cold, bleak forest facilitated the invention of a warm place in the dirt.

The burrow drawing in process using graphite, watercolor, and spray paint on rag paper.

I have been busy drawing and painting in preparation for my upcoming show at beautiful Berry College in less than two months.  
I have started a number of new drawings and hope to finish as many as I can for the exhibition.
Three new drawings tacked on studio wall.

 Another drawing I am working on of underground burrows.
Detail of the tubing that is growing out of the tree stumps in a recent drawing.
 Another detail of a nursing mother coyote surrounded by burning sticks.

Great news! I have been asked to submit writing and work for an upcoming book by Ashley Rooney titled 100 Midwest Artists.  It should be in publication late 2011.

Critique Group

Since moving to Bloomington I have been graciously welcomed into a critique group of fabulous local artists.  We are working on a drawing project together.  Here are a few images from our first critique of the project.

I have a few projects underway.  I am working on a large drawing for a group show proposal with a collection of Bloomington artists.  The photo shows how I often begin, testing images and placement on tracing paper.  After I solidify the composition and content, I transfer the drawing to paper.

A small multi media painting in process.  I saw a recently hit fawn on the highway a few weeks back.  I have not been able to get it out of my head.  The fawn reminds me of the innocence and beauty of the forest and the narratives that are contained within.
