New exhibition space
My paintings are currently on display at the Seattle Design Center in Seattle, Washington. Please contact Carol Anderson/Arterra at 425-456-0055 for more information.
Jerry McLaughlin and I are in the final stages of editing and designing our upcoming book, Cold Wax Medium: Techniques, Concepts & Conversations, which will be available online in early 2017. The project has grown to over 300 pages with contributions from nearly 100 artists working in a wide range of styles and techniques. Our crowdfunding campaign in July/August exceeded our every expectation; we raised 160% of our goal with generous contributions from around the world, and will now be able to print enough full color, high-quality books for everyone who wants to purchase.

I've enjoyed a pleasant and productive summer, with plenty of studio time to complete work for two exhibits this fall, in Eau Claire, WI, and two individually commissioned paintings. Much of my summer's work referenced the month last winter that my husband and I spent in New Mexico--a powerful location in many respects. In addition to working in oil and cold wax, I found time over the summer to experiment with carborundum printing, a process that has long interested me but with which I had no experience. I found that I love the process and will keep on exploring its potential. I also taught in North Carolina and Gloucester. MA, and spent a lot of time on the last phases of the book I am co-authoring with Jerry McLaughlin, Cold Wax Medium: Techniques, Concpets & Conversations.
I will be returning to Ireland and Ballinglen Arts Foundation in County Mayo in October/November. It will be my fourth time there as an artist in residence and to teach, and because it is a place that is very diverse in its landscape, it is always both a satisfying return and a new experience.
