Having fun working on art for my November, 2015, exhibition “Sprout” (East Lansing Public Art Gallery, East Lansing, MI)! These are part of a piece with curly willow branches–hope it all comes together! Crocheted yarn encircling paper circles with Zentangle inspired drawn patterns…Sprout

Project Pop Up Today!

Posted on

I had a wonderful time with Mary Hertler Tallman’s pastel drawing demonstration at Lansing Art Gallery’s Pop Up event, noon-1:00PM! Mary showed how to use pastels on a sample board of pastel paper, as well as drawing her own still life. What a fun lunch hour and great learning experience–thanks to Mary!LAGpastelPopUp

Summer Art Camp Week, June 22-26

Posted on

I enjoyed being surrounded by imaginative collage artists last week at Lansing Art Gallery! Our class focused on selected twentieth century artists, such as Jackson Pollock, Helen Frankenthaler, Morris Louis, Agnes Martin, Romare Bearden, Miriam Shapiro, Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. These creative students explored using paper collage to express themselves—wonderful work! Thanks to LAG for providing an inspiring studio space! And many thanks to Absolute Gallery of Old Town that donated all of our mat board for collaging!CollageARt
