Cold Wax Medium: Techniques, Concepts and Conversations (Squeegee Press, 2017) is currently available for purchase at www.coldwaxbook.com. Jerry McLaughlin and I are very pleased with the result of our two-year project to bring comprehensive information to the growing community of artists using cold wax, and are excited to share the words and work of nearly 100 artists from around the world who are exploring the medium. The next project for Squeegee Press will be a full length teaching video based on the book and on workshop material. We are in planning stages for the video; no release date has yet been set. Please join the mailing list at www.coldwaxbook.com to receive updates on this and other future projects.

I have recently uploaded to Artwork Archive a number of small, unframed works on paper done at my residencies in Sweden and Ireland, as well as a few paintings that are currently available from my studio. You may contact me through the site to inquire about any of these for purchase. (Sort by specific collections using the drop down menu at the top of the page.) Please consult the gallery listings on my contact page for all other purchases. Thanks!
New Mexico Studio
As Spring makes its appearance, I look back to what was an exciting and productive Winter season of painting and teaching. It was also a time to enjoy the property that my husband Don and I have purchased near Dixon, NM, which includes a 100-year old adobe currently under renovation. The studio there is a separate adobe building--tiny, but I managed to paint several large panels in it that have been shipped overseas for the upcoming Fresh Art Fair in Cheltenham, England (to be exhibited by Gormleys Fine Art.) I have also recently supplied new work to my galleries in Telluride, CO, Tucson, AZ, Atlanta, GA and Door County, WI, and to my newest gallery, Jen Tough Gallery in Vallejo, CA.
I'm very pleased to be one of the artists chosen to show in this beautiful new space.
A highlight of the winter was traveling to Auckland, New Zealand for three weeks of teaching and exploring, along with Norma Hendrix of Cullowhee Mountain Arts, and my partner at Squeegee Press, Jerry McLaughlin. The workshops were wonderful, with participants from NZ, Australia, Denmark, and the US. On our free days we visited black sand beaches, rain forests, lovely wineries and restaurants, and even got to ride horses on the beach.
Upcoming travels include North Carolina in June, Italy in August, and Ireland in September--all are centered around workshops (currently full with waiting lists) but will also offer time for travel, exploring, and connecting with friends.
