The State Department has requested four of my paintings for the American Embassy in Helsinki.  The ones they chose are:

 

6 Gold Birches

Patchwork Birches

Waterfall

Ghost Fish

(all oil paintings)

 

The art handlers will pick them up and pack them for overseas shipping. 

I am very happy to have my work where Finnish people can see it!

 

  My next show is in October, at the Paige Wiard Gallery in Calumet.

 

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.

 

 



Artworks : Tree Paintings

 When I moved back to the Upper Peninsula I responded to the beautiful trees everywhere in the forests, now grown back after being logged in the early 1900's.  Birch trees especially became a symbol for nature's ability to survive; the spaces between them as important as the trees.
