We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

The following three paintings were done in Charleston in 09 while struggling with what seemed to me at the time to be a daunting chore: change! I kept with the flower theme to experiment with gold, silver and copper leaf. I'm still, a year later interested in using metal leaf with open acrylics on my surfaces, however I've now changed the size of my work to very small. I'm thinking its just another chapter and that I will keep working and experimenting. This year it feels like the change may be related to subject matter. In any case I'm feeling much more restored creatively and less overwhelmed.
