"Monotype has been my primary medium over the last few years. Monotypes are one of a kind, hand-pulled prints and are the most painterly of all printing processes. One of the things that attracts me to monotype is how it allows for creative expression and spontaneity. Sometimes I work from a drawing and other times I work spontaneously. It all depends on the subject matter and what I am trying to express.
"The image is created on a plate using printing ink and is transferred to paper with an etching process. There are always unexpected surprises and I have to be willing to let go of the final outcome."
"Since 1994 I have been working under the name Fantasy Lane Copper Fairies creating copper sculptures for the home and garden. Wild native plants, insects, hummingbirds, and mermaids are a fascination to me.
"Many of the sculptures I create integrate obsidian wind chimes, crystals, and blown glass bottles for holding seedpods, essential oils, and air plants. I love the organic natural shapes and textures the plants bring to my work bench. I love working in my Northern California Studio creating each piece by hand."
