Current Exhibitions:  

A year in the making and just finished! ​New Mandala, Egrets and Lupines, like Spring Bloom at the Colorado Lagoon, continues with imagery inspired from flora and fauna I have observed around the Colorado Lagoon: snowy egrets hunt in eelgrass, spring's lupine superbloom fills the median and edges the lagoon as do California poppies and other native plants.  It measures 32" x 32" and the technique is wax resist batik using wax and dyes on Crepe de Chine silk with 24 carat gold leaf highlights.  Edges and interior areas have been cut to follow the design and sealed with bronze colored acrylic paint. The original is available, unframed, for $3800.00
