Seems that when a muse calls, the muse also opens up a path. I was graciously offered a space in a butterfly field class at North Cascades Institute (ncascades.org), taught by nationally known and respected butterfly scientist and author Robert Michael Pyle. We spent two days hunting butterflies with his trusty net named Martha and his very kind wife. I left the class with real material and much better first-hand knowledge of butterflies to put into the Plymouth design.
Interested in painting? I work with oils, acrylics,watercolor, silk dye on silk, and stained glass. My work tends towards realism, a titch towards magic realism, and definitely towards the colorful and emotional.
Interested in public art? I work a lot with churches, as I believe that art can change the world. Churches at their best are venues for radical cultural change. My artistic goal in making art for churches is to help tie the rhythms, beauty and wisdom of sacred creation back into our humanly constructed sacred spaces.
