For the last fourteen years my work as an artist has been focused on our fragile world waters as news stories of specific water places and issues drive me to respond. I see poetry in these treasured and storied places. I have tried to ride the waves of information and news stories with playful maneuvering of washed color and lines shaped by our lands and waters. As with my paintings, also available through Wescover, virtually every curving edge represents an actual place where water meets land on the skin of our only earth.

My expansive DROPS collection is represented here as photographic prints. Each DROPS print depicts an object: a unique dimensional "imaginary real" water DROP, created over time with acrylic medium, film, pencil and ink, (and computer and maps and tracing paper and more), then contained and protected by a 4-inch glass Petri dish. The lid of the dish is removed for the photography of each DROP. In some images you might detect a hint of the engraved number in the glass. You'll likely notice how the glass Petri dish holding each DROP "frames" the artwork and often reflects color intensities accentuated by photographer T Maxwell Wagner's light source (just as real water would reflect light, right?).

I'm so happy to be partnering with Dolphin Archival Printing in Kansas City for your print orders. Your selections will be printed on Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag which offers an exquisite satin surface. Your print will arrive unmounted. There will be an extra 1 inch white border beyond the printed image to facilitate your matting and framing options. They are shipped from the printer in a wide and thick cardboard tube for safe arrival.

PRINT SIZES & PRICES:

16" X 16" $ 110.00

22" X 22" $ 170.00

(NOTE that most DROPS prints depicted here in room settings are the 16" 16" size, made larger when you add matting and frames.)

The final product will measure 18" x 18" with a white border around the 16" x 16" image size.
The final product will measure 24” x 24” with a white border around the 22” x 22” image size"

Please feel free to contact me if you are considering print sizes other than those offered.
I'd love to hear about your project!

"Playing at the edges of our world waters."

I was born on the US East Coast and when I was very young my mother drew a flight path map of my father's business trip to Australia, by way of cities and islands. This birds-eye view of our world surely influenced my fascination with the meandering lines where water meets land across the globe. For the last fourteen years my work has been focused on our fragile world waters as news stories of specific water places and issues drive me to respond...The steep challenges and consequences are real. The balancing of poetry and politics feeds and challenges me and my work. I now live near the confluence of rivers at Kansas City, Missouri. In 2010 I left the corporate world in order to establish an art studio near the rivers and to pursue this art life which has led me to exhibit works from Brooklyn to Hawaii. My water-focused works across a wide variety of media can be found in museum, corporate and university collections, as well as private collections across the United States.
