in the studio

Welcome to my studio. Here you’ll find work in progress, behind-the-scenes, experiments and happy accidents, thinking out loud, found objects, and any other random stuff I come up with that obviously needs to be let out so I can make space for making more things…

Just for a fun, here is a depiction of a turtle, which may very be my earliest known “artwork”, age 5 or 6. I still work this way sometimes, making marks with oil or wax crayon, followed by water-based paint or ink. Still true today, the least control over the process, the more fun it is! 

The other drawing is a horse – my absolute favourite subject growing up. Like many little girls who lived in rural/small town USA, I was horse-crazy for a while!
