I’m super excited to announced that I’m now represented by Walker Fine Art in Denver. I will be showing in my first exhibition there beginning this Friday. Details:



Featuring Heather Patterson, Melissa Borrell, Chris DeKnikker, Deidre Adams,
Kim Ferrer, and David Mazza

Sept. 8 – Nov. 4

Walker Fine Art
300 W. 11th Avenue, #A
Denver, Colorado

Opening reception: Sept. 8, 5-9 pm
First Friday reception: Nov. 3, 5-8 pm

on view through Nov. 4

Free from recognizable elements, abstraction allows the artist to explore and
create experimental surroundings. In this group exhibition, 6 artists examine
constructed environments within their abstract work. Through sculpture,
painting and installation, a collective dialogue emerges regarding the
constant overlap of form, line, movement and perception of time.

Hope to see you there!

More experiments in paper and fiber

In May, I started some new work combining fabric and paper. I wrote about by process here. I have several of these in progress, but now that I’ve got a second one finished, it’s officially a series. This piece is currently on view at the Dairy Arts Center in Boulder as part of the exhibition “75 — A Celebration of New Works in Fiber.” The exhibition was accompanied by several events which I’ll post about shortly.

Lost and Found

I finished several paintings a couple of months ago, but because of one thing and another, I’m behind in posting them. Here is Lost and Found, done in a more impasto style than I usually use. I had a jar of silver paint that was drying up, and the process of trying to use it became very physical as I had to fight with it. I found that rather enjoyable, as the physical struggle became an outlet for some emotions. I let myself be a little looser with things I might normally try to smooth out. I’m liking the end result as well.
