Each year I create 13 collages for this exhibit. This year my theme was inspired by my Japan travels. I used periods in Japanese history for titling and fragments of Japanese origin in the compositions. The collage "Heisel" is an example. To see and learn more about this exchange, link to This year's collages will be up on the site by April. Dale Copeland of Okato, New Zealand is the founder of this endeavor. More about her:



Here is my book sculpture for Durango's "Furniture as Art" Auction benefiting KDUR, the college public radio station. The idea is that you can use the stacks for a cup of tea, a candle, and a vase of flowers...then the grouping of stacks becomes "furniture"! The date is March 19 for the auction at the Durango Arts Center.

Genie Shenk exhibit at the Athenaeum, La Jolla, California

Mission Valley Library, San Diego, California

December and January have been intense studio time. A break in the routine found me flying out to Southern California mid
January. A busy week included attending the opening reception at the La Jolla Athenaeum for the exhibit "Dreams and Other
Lost Languages", the MAGIC of my long time friend Genie Shenk. I also made the general meeting of the San Diego Book Arts of which I am a member but rarely make their events in person. The venue was the Mission Valley Library in San Diego with sculptural art by Joyce Cutler-Shaw. Sue Ann Robinson, Curator of Collections at the Long Beach Museum, spoke about her work. I later meet her at the Museum to discuss my installation for an upcoming exhibit in May. Visits with friends and son Mitchell filled out the week.
