“A line is a dot that went for a walk.” – Paul Klee

“Collage is looking and connecting those dots.” – Mimi

Summer is a time for change – for thinking of new ideas and dreaming in a hammock or on a sailboat in the Chesapeake. Sometimes I think I have a direct connection to the universe – for ideas just seem to fall from the sky. I get the best ideas when I walk – and maybe that is the connection. Yoga centers me, too.

These have been an amazing few years – and yes ! I do not update my website as often as i should – because I like making art ! this just takes time away from that. I have been creating many altered books, it’s sort of like an addiction – but in a good way. I work in series and page after page just feeds that.

I like to paint and write and draw and experiment – its all part of the art-making process. After going to the Metropolitan Museum in NYC, I saw a terrific show on Japanese art and was enamored by the scrolls. Scrolls are one continuous thing – but my interpretation is nothing like those I saw. I created a series of 4 – each one 11″ high by 60″ long – they are very fun ! and I will show them one day.

In 2014, I have entered a few important exhibitions – Art | Florida | 2014 I was awarded Best in Show for Mixed Media. My work was included in a National Juried exhibition Positive/Negative at East Tennessee State University’s Slocumb Gallery. I was in a group collage exhibition IMPROVISATION at Isadore Gallery, Lancaster.

Both my work and Paul Engleheart’s work was included in PA Art of the State – 47th Annual Juried Exhibition at the State Museum in Harrisburg.
