Pen/Ink Drawings
Sketchbooks are my constant companion. I haven't carried a purse for years, but there is always a sketchbook by my side. One is on the car seat to record what I see while awaiting various services, one in my studio, one in the office and another in the kitchen. There is also a "doodle" sketchbook by the telephone for pure foolishness. They become a visual diary and a wonderful reference for paintings. Come click on the Pen and Ink Drawing Galleries below and see where my sketchbooks have taken me

Tankhouses
A Tankhouse is the building formed when the tall tower supporting a water tank is enclosed.  The higher the tower, the better the water pressure to homes and yards. Once built, the many different structures were put to a variety of uses. When you are aware of their distinct profile, you will discover them in a myriad of shapes and configurations across the west.

Six  galleries of drawings organized by region.

Quilting
In the 1970's I became interested in crazyquilts. Since there was no available literature to help me, I developed a crazyquilt method using the sewing machine, a method that left nice flat seams.

I first crazyquilted simple items such as placemats and pillows. These were followed by a crazyquilt-style denim bedspread and a reupholstered recliner chair using fabric from old denim jeans. I created shirts, skirts, coats, jackets, vests, blouses, bathrobes and ascots and demonstrated my machine-sewn crazyquilt method in quilt classes and at Community Colleges.

Artful Diversions
With busy hands and an active mind, the creative drive will cause one to find expression in a variety of mediums: from stone mosaics to curtains made of driftwood and eyeglass lenses. View some of the eclectic projects.
