Four of my paintings are now part of the permanent collection in the American Embassy in Helsinki, Finland..


I have been working on a series of large oil paintings of trees, based on  two years of abstractions, now evolving into imagery. Two of the paintings from this series are part of the Embassy collection.


I continue to make paintings of animals, mainly those of the north woods of my childhood.  A large bear is in the Great Lakes Showcase during March and April.


A surprising turn of events is thet the little dolls I have been making all my life just for fun or to give away to friends or family have started to be taken seriously.  I am not sure how I feel about all this, as they now start to take on a different identity... Still working this out in my mind. (see Animal Sculptures.)


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.
