Card for Our Veterans
I created this card and had 250 printed. Children from my church wrote messages inside and these were delivered to a veterans home/hospital in Rocky Hill, CT
LOVE ALL CARD
Originally a Peace Print, I created a card of this design. I sent the original artwork to the Iraqi ambassador in Washington DC before the war began. Who knows where it is now?
For Tomorrows Children's Fund. I try to get this message out pretty often!
First card I did for Tomorrows Children's Fund. This is actually just a sketch, but they liked it so much, they used the original!
Another for TCF. It always made me so happy to create artwork and card designs for such a good cause.
A card for TCF based on one I had originally created for United Community Family Services in Norwich, CT. A sort of self portrait!
Another TCF card. Christmas cards are a specialty of mine. It is the perfect season for me as it is the season of giving!
These are prints from original watercolor illustrations that I have created over the years. Most of these are able to be purchased for between 15 and 25 dollars per print. If you are interested you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

One of my Peace Prints. This appears brighter on the screen than it really is...but a similar design was commissioned for a synagogue in Washington DC. They made greeting cards from the artwork I created for them.

I love to create monoprints. You can only make one original...once printed it can never be duplicated. I use acrylics and metallic paints. Some prints I use to make original greeting cards as well.
A one of a kind print. The colors, layers and transparencies create an illusion of depth. Love using metallic paints as well.
This is a print that I took and then painted into with a brayer.
The layers of paint create interesting textures and color combinations.
For this print, I take a monoprint and then use a gel film to lift a photo and adhere it on top of the print.
On and off I get the "bug" and want to create editorial cartoons. Some have been published in News From Indian Country. I have always had an interest in Native American issues.
