Winter has been physically and mentally challenging this year… So much ice it’s difficult to walk and has turned even young people into slow-moving, cautious elders. Falling on ice can be painful and even deadly, and our home was surrounded. One might think I’ve had enough of it – but our treat to each other on Christmas morning was to bundle up against the formidable cold and go out to photograph an ice-covered world!
Hovering around zero degrees Fahrenheit the day was cold enough that the encrustation was sure to remain for some time – but the sun was finally out and lit up everything in beautiful crystals and rainbow colors!
As an expression of my love of the processes and transformative power of creating art I have enjoyed teaching and sharing my knowledge with young and old. Over the years I have trained myself to teach other artists and aim to inspire others to discover the creativity innate in themselves. I am a practicing artist who has expanded my art making beyond the studio into participatory engagement with different people in different settings. I lead young people and adults in creative experiences that deepen their understanding and engagement with the world around them and with their own creative fire.
I create my own unique Place-Based art – translating my flashes of wonder and impressions of a place onto the printed page through the laborious and time-consuming ancient technique of relief printing.
