The Treasure Project.

Each piece in the show consists of an image and text, hanging side by side which are intended to be viewed together as one.Each piece in the show consists of an image and text, hanging side by side which are intended to be viewed together as one.
It seems to me that life is an entanglement of stories, all intertwined and joined to make a grand creation. We make a story each day and during the process incorporate objects into the fabric of our narrative. Each object has a story, and as we move on we leave these objects as historical footprints in the snow, vague leftovers on the path of our progress through life.
Many objects have made their way to me from generations before me; furniture, silver, teapots, plates, glass – I think of them collectively as treasure because of the wealth of stories associated with them that link me with the people before me. We all have objects that mark us in a similar way.
Every time an artist makes a piece a story is being told. For this show I chose to tell my story with words and images. The text beside the drawing is an extension of the drawn object, a creative collaboration of fact and fiction and together the drawing and the text combine to make one piece.
Prints are available on request. The large ones, ( 20" X 28") are $650.00 and the small ones, (14"X20") are $400.00. Also Ron and I have made a book which is priced at $35.00.
