Much to my surprise, I am having an exhibition at the Omphale Gallery in Calumt in September and October.  It was a last minute invitation, but since I have been working for 2 years without a show and have work piled up, I decided to accept.


The show is about animals and how fragile their lives are, a subject that I have been working on for about 20 years.  They will be mostly new paintings with a few older ones, and a beautiful poem by Patiann Rogers,to help present the spirit of the work.


I also have tlittle animal sculptures in galleries: tthe Paige Wiard Gallery in Calumet, the Community Arts Center in Hancock, and the Charlevoix Center for the Arts in Charlevoix, downstate.


My primary work is an attempt to combine imagery and abstraction, an ongoing striving to communicate while going deeper, whether I use animals or trees or no imagery at all.


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.
