Animal series Cats, Dogs and Chickens OH MY!

I like any kid, drew what was around me and used what materials were at hand for my art projects. I used photos of family, pets and cactus for tile designs while I worked exclusively in clay. I'd look out my studio window early in the mornings and pinch out small clay sculptures of my cats or dogs sleeping in the sun. I began sketching my chickens. Now found objects, reclaimed and re purposed materials are “IN STYLE” and I'm having a ball painting on scraps of wood and reclaimed kitchen cupboard doors. Many of the interesting “junk” objects, bottle tops, scraps of wire, beads, piano parts and UFOs (unidentified found objects) I've collected become attached to these paintings. I'm rediscovering my playful approach to art.

Earth Series Paintings

I began painting the desert landscapes in the 60s but put aside painting to focus on clay for 30 years. Landscapes as subject material began creeping into my pottery as exterior decorations on vessels glaze paintings on commercial tiles, stoneware mural and mixed media, (plaster on wood). In 2003 I resumed painting, with acrylics starting with the view from my brothers porch in Lake Havasu and have since forged out to the surrounding areas. The paintings include landscapes, geological formations, and pools of desert water. Some paintings are finished box form with the painting wrapping around the edge, they do not require frames and are wired to hang.
