About the Artist

I cut pieces away from a dark sheet of paper to reveal an image, always searching for the essential lines and curves that make an object, animal or scene unique. In my life art has been fit in around the edges, a tiny sketchbook and a stolen moment in the rigging of a sailing ship, or a thick roll of paper held open by my bare feet in the sand. I have taught and danced, researched and adventured from Ketchikan to Cape Horn. Currently snug in Seattle, I carve out the pieces of those days that need to be saved for other eyes, and find new inspiration in treasures close to home. I was recently awarded a 2012 CityArtist Project grant from Seattle’s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs to produce a body of work for exhibits at area libraries & community centers.
