Owl papercut series

I found these little frames at the thrift shop and was inspired to make a series of paper owls to fit in them. I've made fabric pocket owls, so a paper version it makes sense. It's fun to try to do something very simple and only concentrate on colors and patterns. I'm already thinking of the next series. These owl babies are named "Sara, Percy and Bill", of course. I'll show the other ones as they come together.


A Tree for Emmy

Just in time for spring, or maybe a bit early, (especially considering how often I have to run outside as it gets dark to cover my baby garden with a warm blanket) I got my new book out from Peachtree. It certainly is bright.... It got a nice customer review on amazon and in general I'm pretty happy with it. ( I love the pink polka dot endpapers) You can see a few of my favorite pages above.


Mty Teacher Dances on the Desk

I just got my artwork back from Sleeping Bear Press this morning. Here are some of my favorites from this little book of poetry.

Here is a peak at my studio....maybe this will inspire me to clear and organize a larger space to work in. I'm applying to be in an Open Studios Tour in May.
