I will have an active "live" set in the studio and I’ll also be working on several new pieces showing steps in the printing process and talking about my approach, techniques, and ideas.
From Port Townsend:
- Take Highway 19 south.
- Turn left onto Woodland Drive (which is directly opposite the Jefferson International Airport entrance)
- Go 4/10 of a mile to Ridgeview Dr. (the second street on the right).
- Turn right on Ridgeview Drive and immediately turn right into gravel driveway.
In this world of over-saturated, in your face, and instantaneous image gratification, it is sometimes difficult to break away and separate our senses from the constant bombardment that we are assaulted with on a daily basis. What used to be a quiet country road is now a super-highway, blasting a never-ending pitch for the next restaurant, hotel, fast food chain, attorney or religious prophecy. Spontaneous information and visual overload instantly materialize, stalking us at the push of a button, on gas pumps, in bathrooms, on the road, in our pockets. We no longer choose when and what content we care to view and absorb. It is forced upon us.
The images in the Solace of Space collection are designed to draw us into spaces of comfort and solitude, free from the constant visual noise that we encounter every day. They are suggestive of something familiar, and yet are unable to be defined. In fact, they could be anywhere – dreamlike images inviting you into a place of private wonder. You find yourself responding emotionally to the colors, textures and movement within each artistically crafted image, creating a sense of tranquility and space – the Solace of Space.

Studio is open by appointment during the remainder of the year.
