LIFESAVING

My grandmother's red cross pin inspired this piece. There are many layers with unusual items buried; keys, flowers, bones and seeds



HOMEWORK

This wooden ironing board has been with me for years, waiting for the right time. The work of having a home; all the joys and heartaches, are found in this piece.



PLACES TO BE
8" x 8"
Mixed Media
Pockets of milkweed seed, in the center of this piece tell
of the gentleness. The fern/tree grows up from the earth
with strength.



HEALING WORK

Mixed Media
Made with healing plants, the echinacea in the center blooms
in the brightness of the spring sun.



COMING INTO THE LIGHT
53" x 24"
Mixed Media
This triptych was painted as a loved one was dying and
the light was returning to the earth. Moving from darkness
to light is a central theme.




MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE

Many layers cover the elements partially hidden in this
painted collage. Looking closely reveals the images below.




BUDS FOR LIFE

Each square (not the corners) contains the same branch budding. From the closed bud to the full leaf, the mysterious process of growth is revealed.

A scrap of fabric from eighty years ago takes on a new meaning here. Hidden below its surface is a key and cedar sprig.




IT'S IN THE DETAILS

Hot and cool colours contain each other in this old printer's drawer. The shelf along the bottom can hold personal treasures or remain empty.



PULLING TOGETHER

Looking closely at nature reveals the beauty in each petal and leaf. These elements create a sense of balance and place.
