Colourful Contemporary Art

I am a professional artist and art teacher.
I paint the tenacious bits of wild that defy human activity in a manner inspired by
my fascination with fossils and designed to make the viewer look deeper.
Studio visits by luck or by appointment are welcome.

February Miniature shows


I'm finally back up to speed and working like mad to make up for lost time.
I think this is the longest I've ever gone without posting. Between THE flue, which was absolutely horrible, and the after Christmas doldrums, I've let two weeks slip by... not like me at all!
The February Mini shows are fast approaching, at Portside and the Art Exchange.
I've been experimenting with some rather different stuff (for me). 'Wall jewelry' is the concept I'm working on. Not all of the mini's in this picture are done, but this will give you an idea of where I'm going with this.
I'm using my beloved metallics, and incorporating beading and found objects. We'll see if I like it enough to put in the shows.
I also did caricatures at a party last week, the mom picked up my card when I was doing caricatures at one of the street festivals last year. It was like old, old times, once upon a long time ago I was a clown, and was booked for kids parties just about every weekend, sometimes several. Caricatures are much more dignified, and certainly less energy draining, then clowning, although I was feeling it by the time I was done LOL!
