In my work, I try to achieve appreciation and gratitude. My inspiration and passion is found in the natural world, and daily life. For me, the impermanence of those worlds is much of the beauty. Printmaking, especially Etching provides opportunity for detail, texture and surprises... all which I adore! I have enjoyed art, gardening, and the changing seasons all my life. I live with my husband, our college-aged son and our sweet mellowing dog Lunam in rural southern Wisconsin.
