STUDIO NEWS




NOTES

The work continues to grow and my passion for hand printing [with a recent foray into wood carving] nurtures the collage fiber pieces!

Wonderful photographs, poetry, and experiences in Kansas, New Mexico, Australia, Central Europe, Chile, Greece, Iceland, Italy, and Spain--along with la poesía española--are inspiring.
