Presentations, Exhibits, and a Paper-Making Class

It's been a wonderful winter, but spring is always a welcome sight!

I've been busy with various projects (art and non) and am fortunate to have had the opportunity to give artist talks about the Foreshadowing series to garden clubs in Webberville, Mason, and Chelsea. Prints from this series were also selected for inclusion in the 56th Annual Greater Michigan Art Exhibition at the Alden B. Dow Museum of Science & Art and the 32nd Annual Lowell Arts West Michigan Art Competition.

Currently, Foreshadowing prints are included in a two-person show with Justin Kellner at the Baber Room at Central Michigan University. Justin paints these beautiful, seemingly abstract scenes, but hidden within are the tiniest details of threatened bird species. Our work fits amazingly well together and it has been such an honor exhibiting with him and getting to know more about his process.

Upcoming shows include the Boardman River Nature Center (June 2 - end of Aug.) where I'll be teaching my first paper-making class (June 2nd), as well as a group show with Linda Beeman, Carolyn Damstra, Lynn Uhlmann, Cathy VanVoorhis, and Thomas Tomasek at the Oliver Art Center from Oct. 19 to Nov. 23.

In the meantime, I hope to capture more shadows and to finally finish processing some baby's breath and Japanese lyme grass I've had in my laundry room all winter! Back to work!!
