Profile and Experience 

work sampleDrawing is now central to my work. I work in pastels and have returned to charcoal. I hope to show new work soon. I continue as a photographer. My technical background supports me in my camera work, in digital editing in Lightroom and in my creative work with Photoshop.

I pursued art and photography while working to support a family during the 1990s. I started my art studio, Muskrat Studio, in 2006. Currently I am focusing on new directions in charcoal drawings, pastels, and photography. Past work includes figurative drawings in charcoal, graphite, and scenes in pen and ink. I have modest experience in painting portraits in acrylics and oils. I have done work in sculpture. I recently completed a digital art project re-working photographs and shots taken of a selected set of charcoal drawings to develop digital abstracts. The project is now complete and the work shown. 


Going Home

We deserve happiness. We deserve love. It is our heritage. We will find love and joy in our own hearts, in going home to God. God will lead us there. Let us laugh, love, live and learn. In our lively dance may we walk with God entirely present in each moment. Let us do what we love doing and be content knowing all will be restored.

Here are three of my poems people on my Twitter feed really enjoyed..

a wind's soft rushing /
a gentle rain touches me /
silence descending

a thin reed captures /
in its solitary grace /
winter sun's bleak stare

a wind sweeps through stones /
striding through fallen branches /
my own wild cry soars
