Healing art flows through the studio

Nebraska: Collected Glimpses
, a series of 11 collages commissioned for a new hospital, has just been completed and is en route to North Platte, Nebraska for installation. This project gave me the opportunity to do some research on the quietly beautiful, and surprisingly diverse, landscape of northwestern Nebraska.

The series includes images of waterways, plains, and the sandhills — along with native flora and fauna. Above is one of the smaller pieces: "River's Edge," 6 x 24," composed entirely of ripped paper elements. It includes my interpretation of prairie agates (who knew?). I've collected agates along the Oregon Coast but had no idea how many different varieties existed across the country.
"Mapped," 18 x 24 x 2," collage on wood panel with painted acrylic background.

The view from here

It's been a wild few months. I've been soothed and inspired by the forces of nature: torrential downpours, amazing skies, and balmy summer days. My time in the studio has been a refuge and delight. (At left is a detail from another of my Nebraska collages.)

Here's to summer — and simple pleasures!

With gratitude for your interest in my work,
