BIO + CONTACT
As an artist, I investigate the beautiful and complex shapes that make up the natural world.
I’m a printmaker and current president of the international Nature Printing Society. I create nature prints by hand and on a walking press using actual leaves and fish. Gyotaku is the Japanese word for fish printing and I use gyotaku techniques in my printmaking workshops at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
I’m also a painter and June, 2021 I will return to Yosemite National Park as an artist-in-residence. I spend about half of my time giving workshops connecting people with nature and showing them how easy it is to celebrate the natural world. I hold nature printmaking workshops in the spring and fall at the Smithsonian Associates here in Washington, DC.
,In June 2020, Swinging Bridge Press published my book Into the Woods: Families Making Art With Nature. Into the Woods is available on Amazon as both a paperback and eBook and you can find it at your local independent bookstore.
If you’re interested in workshops based on Into the Woods, or if you’d like me to speak to your group through Zoom or, later in 2021, in person, please get in touch below.
