 I use plants and animal life to investigate the complex behaviors of human relationships.  The cells, organisms, crustaceans, plants, flowers, animals, and my imagination act like surrogates, representing my relationships with people. I start working on one area of a plate and let my marks grow. I do not know what my image is going to look like in the end.  During the process of working on a plate these forms continue to change and evolve. The more I think about a particular relationship the more my images grow.

The insanely talented  
is currently installing her new body of work

Adornment Throne

at workshop for the Month of November
I am so excited, I am beside myself
Heidi and I met while fresh-faced coeds at 
The School of the Art Institute of Chicago
Heidi has more talent in her tiny pinky toe
than most of the entire population 
within a 2,000 square mile radius

for reals

Her most recent body of work has found her in the
of hand embroidered
silk/cotton scarves 
embellishments trapped in acrylic
and furniture pieces
totally amazing

let there be light

the work of Matthew Shelton is at once simple and spectacular
I had the pleasure of living with several sizes and variations of his
light boxes 
installed in the window box "gallery" at workshop 
for the month of October
I am deciding which piece to keep for the shop
and the decision is not an easy one
