I am working on ink drawings for another book by Vic Foerstoer, "Hidden in the Trees."  I am very much enjoying the process of stroking on paper witn a delicate point, and creating fine gradations of value in drawings of trees.


My primary work is an attempt to combine imagery and abstraction, an ongoing striving to communicate while going deeper, whether I use animals or trees or no imagery at all.


In January I will have a retrospective of my work, in the Finlandia Gallery, until mid-February.


I can no longer work in oill, for health reasons.  In late spring or early summer, all of  my remaining oil paintings will move to Montana to a new gallery in Anaconda, where they will reside permanently.


In October I will have an exhibition of drawings and mixed media work at the Community Arts Center in  Hancock, and in 2018 I will have an exhibition at the Bonifas Art Center in Escanaba.


My studio is in an old elementary school, 801 North Lincoln Drive in Hancock. I love visitors!  I am usually there but please call first: 906-370-3183.  My hours are erratic.
