Lale Nebula

Lale Nebula
Destroyed Block SINTRA Viscosity Collagraph
12.5 x 15 in.
Edition: 8/8 – $100 – 5 available

Tulips (lale) originated from Persia. A look inside reveals a cloistered world of color and pattern. I am struck by their similarity to some galaxies.



Welded Steel, Canvas, Watercolor, Light
47 x 33 in.
Available (sort of) – $3000

This is one of my favorite pieces.  It hangs above our fireplace. I took a sculpture class and despite losing some hair to fire, it turns out I LOVE WELDING. If you look through my work, you’ll see that circles figure rather prominently. With this piece, I tried (I really did!) to use straight lines and right angles, but my nature took over and filled everything with curved lines.

This piece is really hard to take a picture of because a) I’m not a photographer and b) my little camera kinda blows. But it lights up from the back and I love it so, but for a mortgage payment, I’d sell it to you.

No. 78/Tao Te Ching

Soft water goes around hard rock.        Who wins?
Hand-watercolored, Destroyed SINTRA Block Print
13 x 9 in.
Edition: 10/10 – $120 – 9 available

~ Inquiries ~

I was dissatisfied with my words on the first piece, so here’s the final version. From an ongoing mental series – Interpretations of the Tao Te Ching – Verse 78 speaks to one of the underlying threads of the Tao Te Ching – water. Water is ubiquitous – we are made of it, our planet is covered in it, without it there would be no life. Though its nature is yielding, it always prevails. A slow drip will eventually carve out a stone. Though it naturally sinks to the lowest levels, it remains unchanged. These are valuable lessons, lessons that master negotiators know well and lessons that true leaders utilize in caring for their people.

No. 78

Nothing in the world is as soft and yielding as water,
Yet nothing can better overcome the hard and strong,
For they can neither control nor do away with it.

The soft overcomes the hard,
The yielding overcomes the strong;
Every person knows this,
But no one can practice it.

Who attends to the people would control the land and grain;
Who attends to the state would control the whole world;
Truth is easily hidden by rhetoric.

Golgi Apparatus

Golgi Apparatus
Viscosity SINTRA Collagraph
30 x 22 in.
Edition: 6/6 – $275 – 4 available

The Golgi Apparatus is an organelle found in most eukaryotic cells. I like that the micro-bits of our bodies resemble the creatures and landscapes deep in our oceans which, in turn, resemble the outer reaches of our universe.

This is a viscosity collagraph print. The plate was both carved into and built up on using gel medium and sand. Ink was forced into the carved grooved surface (intaglio) and, in the same run, also rolled on top of the surface (relief) using inks at different viscosities to encourage chemical reactions and repulsions and interesting minglings.

No. 11 – Value Emptiness

No. 11 – Value Emptiness
Monotype, Destroyed Block SINTRA, Silkscreen
7.5 x 30 in.
Edition: 11/11 – 8 available – $175

This piece was inspired by two things. 1) Verse 11 from the Tao Te Ching which speaks of understanding that sometimes it is the open space inside something that makes it useful.  And 2) My frustration at paying for a parking permit at George Mason University, yet never being able to find a space.
