IN CAHOOTS ARTIST RESIDENCY
I am so grateful to have been accepted into the artist residency program at In Cahoots in Petaluma, CA. I will be spending a week working inside this sweet cabin. As their web site says, “In Cahoots Residency is a place of collaboration and creative energy, a rare opportunity for uninterrupted work time as well as dialog with other artists. The residency provides housing and studio space to emerging and professional artists working in a variety of mediums. Our pastoral location and light-filled studios for book art, letterpress, writing, and printmaking inspire artists to make new discoveries and leave with a renewed passion for their work.” Learn more at www.incahootsresidency.com.
Fall 2023 – Dates TBD
Come visit my studio in Muir Beach, CA where you can learn more about my creative process and explore a wide selection of my mixed media art. I will have layered collages, fine art prints, bottle sculptures, and a selection of books – including my monograph Offerings and the children’s book, The Wolf Who Ate the Sky – plus notecards and more. In addition, my neighbors, Wendy Johnson & Peter Rudnick, will be opening their home nursery next door. Please know the studio is also open by appointment – just send me a note to set up a time.

Permanent Collection Exhibition
On view thru December 31, 2022
I am delighted that this piece, entitled Sanctuary #3, is part of the Bolinas Museum’s Permanent Collection Exhibit, on view through the end of this year. The museum is open Friday – Sunday. Also on view are some other wonderful shows including a group exhibition on called Pacific Rise: Ocean Health.
This piece is from the series I call Sanctuary: “These images are grounded in place. Coastal Marin County in Northern California has been a source of comfort and inspiration for me for over thirty years. By bottling images of this area and then re-photographing them against a field of blackness, I isolate and transform them into touchstones of an inner territory that is simultaneously wild and peaceful.”
