Oil pastel, 24x36", 2017, NFS
My work is about environment and documentation.
Life on earth now is a lot different than when we were young. We are paying the price for our over abundance. Other species, wild places, habitats are declining.
I keep track of what is here now in a small portion of a region known as the Pacific Northwest. These are personal stories, a diary of sorts.
I am grateful to live in a place of such beauty. It is less than it was but more than it might be in future.
I am a Seattle native living and working in Anacortes, Washington. My formal art training was at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle with an emphasis on sculpture.
In the mid eighties I began a five year jewelry apprenticeship and have continued working in that medium. In 2005 I took an oil pastel workshop. I continue to work in that medium.
