"All My Relations" Solo Show

Opening: Saturday, April 16, 6-9pm     Show runs through May 20

I like breaking rules within strict confines. I create stamps, often with strong images within frames. Then I extend echoes of that image – and new designs – beyond the frame to make what’s going on outside the confined area just as engaging.

I incorporate critters: bugs, lizards, birds, or whatever catches my attention in nature into my work. i have been experimenting with abstracts and patterns in the last 2 years of going back to painting. most of my works for this show are multi media works on paper.

The Arts Upstairs is a community gallery with 12 full members.  However, all artists are welcome to show work, space permitting. Hang fee: $10 for 24" and under,  $15 for 36",  $20 for over 36". There is a  35% commission on sales.
