morning light

One of my favorite times in the studio 
is early morning.
 There is nothing like 
the light that shines in 
and makes my heart sing

4's class

What's more fun than a 4's class at Beehive?
This group gets me every week.
They are so on top, non stop and into everything.
They remind me to laugh.
And we laugh alot.

paper collage on wood

We re-worked  these collages for the entire 6 week session..
 adding rich layers of color, texture and pattern each time.
We began with handmade papers that I collected,
 followed by construction and tissue paper cutouts, and then
printing with a mix of paints.
Stencils, oil pastels, colored pencils
 and sharpies to finish.
