Time Flies in My Drawers

Time passing seems to be a thread that has run through my work. Marking time, cherishing moments. Time Flies is from a series I did when my sons were infants and toddlers. Clothing they quickly outgrew, became a vehicle to share stories of childhood, memory, and motherhood. Time Flies is one of my favorite pieces from the […]

(leaving the) Nest #6 in My Drawers

(leaving the) Nest #6 in My Drawers

Drawing is the most direct line connecting my heart and my hand. It is a visceral response to a place, or situation.

Time Check in My Drawers

Crows are intelligent, and resourceful. They are cooperative breeders which means they also stay close to the place they were born and help raise the young. They build their nests high above the ground with twigs, branches, cloth, hair- or whatever they can find. This series was a response to returning to the east coast […]

Big Fish Little Pond in My Drawers

Day #21 of What’s in My Drawers. Fluid and peaceful, my koi pond continues to be a place of refuge. This was one of 3 or 4 large paintings on paper that I did when we first moved into our home several years ago. Finding a house with a koi pond and gardens closed the […]
