Some Trees






My latest Tree Series
(come see them at The Grape Choice during the Kirkland Artist Studio Tour on Mother's Day weekend!)

Kirkland Artist Studio Tour - Next Weekend!



Kirkland Artist Studio Tour
(and a lovely little sale!)
Mother's Day Weekend - May 7th and 8th 10:00 - 6:00

Come join me!
Over 50 Artists participating in a free, self-guided tour of artist studios, homes, galleries and downtown Kirkland businesses!
I am honored to be sponsored by The Grape Choice* and will set up a studio in their front room (spilling out onto the patio if the weather cooperates!)

I will have my newest (not yet seen!) paintings and nuno felt pieces as well as books and prints. Best of all - all of the artwork that I bring with me will be on a special Mother's Day weekend sale during the event!

Kids Art


Drawing lessons in the elementary schools today. We worked on observational drawing starting with light contours, medium value shading then focus on details. These were drawn by a table of 9-10 year olds.

My Artwork on a Book Cover

Thrilled to be a part of Amy MacLennan's new book - a lovely poetry collection! My painting 'She Hangs Lanterns in the Night Sky' is on the cover!

Teaching Art to Kids



Teaching every day this week in the Elementary schools - we are warming up with some Blind Contours (no looking at your drawing and don't lift your pencil off the paper) of our hands and our neighbor's faces - you can imagine how hilarious the kids find this! But while they laugh, it is amazing how many details they are seeing. I forgot to take photos of their work, but here is one of my Blind Contour hand demos and a Contour face demo

Colorful Hair

His hair turned purple while I was away teaching!
