Experience life through art

Another View, a art showing of hand colored etchings

May 11, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This past year has been one of experimentation with the polymer plates for etching. Changes in chemistry, metal, manufacturers and processing have created much upheaval in the world of printmaking with polymer plates. After many disappointing failures I settled in to making the correct exposures, ink choice and subject matter. I enjoyed every minute of printing and hand coloring these final images. They feel mystical and magical. I spend much time in my gardens and last season was intrigued with the thought of a view from under the leaves looking up to the sky. These images are of my squash plants and sunflowers in the Rocky Hill School's Jamie Gardener Garden Classroom.

My process includes Carbon Black and Graphite Gamblin Etching Inks ,  BFK Rives Printmaking Paper  , Takach Polymer Plates and Printing Press, Water Based Oil Paints, Wax Based Colored Pencils, Aquacover and framing from Crestar Manufacturing.

Portraits make wonderful memories!

April showers sure bring May flowers! and Mother's Day too!


Wandering my property and enjoying the beautiful blossoms puts me in that "Portrait Mood". May brings us the beauty and scents of our precious earth along with the day that honors our Mothers. I don't think that there is a better way to celebrate Family and Mothers than a Family Portrait. Give your mom a Gift Certificate for a family portrait and we can plan and gather at the best time for your family.


Certificates can be tailored to your need. Just let us know.

Enjoyed a trip to Ireland this past winter, it was transformational for me....Derek Smith of Beautiful Meath tours, http://beautifulmeath.com, introduced me to the beauty, mystery and sacredness of the island. I would love to return and spend more time. Life is short, I look to enjoy every moment!

Welcome Andrew!

At just 3 weeks old Andrew and his family visited my portrait studio. We had a wonderful time capturing the joy that he has brought to his family, his big brother was so excited! Of course, Andrew snoozed away! 




I created beautiful images and designed a Keepsake Album for his family to enjoy. 



We are planning for Andrew's next visit, when he is making eye contact and cooing sounds. We might even include a pumpkin in the portraits, Halloween will be on the way!
