Alchemy is “a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.” In my “Solar Alchemy” pieces I'm pushing the boundaries of the traditional cyanotype process. I'm transforming the images and colors by drastically altering the solar exposures, adding extra chemicals and heat, and using eco-printing techniques. I enhance the prints using a variety of media – watercolor, pencil, colored pencil, ink, collage – to achieve desired effects. There's an element of mystery and lots of experimentation with each new piece. Pure MAGIC!

I'm really looking forward to sharing my newest cyanotype work with you!!

FRIENDS, PLEASE NOTE: My home studio won't be open this September – my daughter's getting married – but I will be set up at ARTHOUSE on the first weekend of Sac Open Studios (Sept 8-9) with notecards, smaller pieces, a raffle for artwork, class sign-ups, and all the usual fun! See you at Arthouse!

This is the 5th year I'll open my home studio to friends during December. I've scheduled my art party earlier in the month so you can get a jump on your gift shopping.

There will be a great selection of artsy items to choose from in a wide range of prices – something's sure to fit your budget! I'll have some items on sale as well.

And, I'll be serving tasty treats and hot holiday beverages. YUM. Put it on your holiday calendar – I hope to see you in December!
