I just finished this Spaceboy mixed media picture. It is for a project for my scbwi schmooze group where everyone picked from three random selections. Mine were desert, spacecraft and farm animal.

Doggie Cards

Here is one of the linoblock doggie cards I made for my etsy shop.

This is a section from one of my Desert days linoblock prints. The dog appears on some cards I made for my etsy shop, too.

BIRDMAN, original linoblock print

I have to admit to having a weakness for my Birdman. He looks like a South American adventurer. He could appear at any moment in Peru or Guatemala, or The Brazilian rain forest.

I am really enjoying making all the miniature, multicultural dolls for my etsy shop. These are my favourite of the blanket babies. I like the fact that they all have different expressions. I have made so many now that I will have to open a new shop just for dolls.

Desert Dog

Desert Dog combines linoblock prints on linen with hand embroidery. This is the first time I have tried using the two elements together. I think it works well. I have been wanting to experiment using negative space in my needlework ever since I visited the extreme embroidery exhibit at the Museum of Design in New York, last February.

This is another in my Desert Days series. It is a linoblock print on linen made with multiple, individual blocks. You can see more from this series in my shop on etsy at
