It's always a team effort to install my fifteen foot drawing. Here's a few pics of Brian Dennis using his considerable skills. We worked out a plan and now the drawing looks very happy at Marguerita Hagan and Pierre Trombert's studio.

I'm looking for possibilities to install it somewhere or at least for an extended period of time.

I would love this piece to have a permanent home. Ya interested?

A gift to me. Sad that my favorite art supply store is gone.

For my most recent exchibition I created a series of drawings that are driven not by results but by process. Each of these drawings is made using the same ink, the same pen, the same unrelenting process. The results reveal themselves to be reminders of her meandering walks and joyful runs in the woods. The straight trunks making blurred lines that suggest motion, space, and time — a DNA image of being in the woods.

When you can't make it to your studio, you have to open up your art bag and work from your kitchen table. Some days this summer and autumn have been oppressively hot and getting excited about stepping out my apartment door has been exceptionally low.

Four of the six drawings I have been working on in the Radical Warp Series. These four pieces are finished and I have two more to go.

I've begun to discover new ways to use my series of marks. Same marks different context. Vey interested in pursuing this direction with an additional series. Each series surprises me with its completion.

I've been working on a number of sigle sheet books. They are very easy to work on no matter where I am. I can draw in cafes, on the beach, on the kitchen table, to name a few. I find making each one exciting and intriguing.

Each small book has a narative and a rhytmn of it's own.

I've included a couple photos of two different books. I'm continuing to make additional books and will have several available for view and sale at Philadelphia Open Studio Tours.

Can I wrap my drawing around the chimney and mantle? You bet I can. Protyping the hanging for my work. My drawing can be installed around corners.

I'm gathering all my hanging materials including epoxy to prepare pushpins for a metallic disc that can be a base for rare earth magnets.
