Current Work

These are large pieces, probably will be hung like scrolls. Mixed media on white drawing paper. Hope to experiment soon with different surfaces, maybe linen, to appear more as a textile. Third pictured is in progress.

ArtLab at Spiva

Another great round of ArtLab! Seven area art teachers brought one or two of their students to make art together. We studied pieces from Spiva's permanent collection that had to do with "place", then we did some studies, postcards to mail to donors to say thanks, and some writing exercises about a sense of place. Then the teachers and students traced one another, drew an element from the permanent collection over their heart, and filled their silhouettes with many mediums before installing them on the art center walls. Pictured here are two of the youngest, a first grader and a second grader.
