Each Above: My ‘Stronger Together’ series conveys women's personal style as a means of strength and self expression. Each woman tells her individual story, but as a group a much larger statement is created.

Above: A theme I’ve visited often is "fictional portraiture".  Recently my series of "Visages" (faces) explore self-expression through fashion. I use mixed materials including fabric, paper and found jewelry.

Left: I was experimenting with multiples of shapes to express movement. The spontaneity and liveliness of the forms made me think of espresso beans. Being that I am passionate about all things coffee, it seemed natural to do an Espresso series. This one was my favorite so it hangs in our home, at least for now.

 

 
 
 
 

I feel lucky to work in my wonderful studio in the home that I share with my husband, Bob Smith, and my 4 precious dogs (all adopted from the Arizona Humane Society). For over 20 years I have been represented by Wilde Meyer galleries in Scottsdale and Tucson. Being Creative is truly my passion and I love to share it.
