Chrysalis 2 in My Drawers

In my art, as in my life, I wear my heart on my sleeve and use my work to examine and share my story. This small print is a line etching with aquatint for the rich tonal areas, and gold embossed rubber stamp. Recovering from a bilateral mastectomy, I felt tight, and raw, but I gave […]

Record setting temperatures for this month is a good reason as any to share a mixed media drawing I created on site at the Wilmington Flower Market Spring 2015. Rides, dogs, food trucks, vendors, entertainment, and of course, flowers, makes the annual 3 […]
