About

Over the last two years I have been working on a series of 50 woven fabric drawings, exploring our interconnectedness and the beauty in our flaws.  These pen and ink drawings are on Kitakata rice paper and floated--suspended by clothes pins--in unique custom made wood and glass frames which allow light to embrace the delicateness of the paper.

The upcoming exhibit is an opportunity to show all 50 drawings together.  This kickstarter campaign is to raise the funds to cover the cost of the frames.  These unique frames are made from poplar, a fast growing sustainable wood,  have museum grade UV-protective glass both in the front and back, and are secured with rust-resistant screws. I designed these frames to be an extension of the artwork itself. They are being constructed by a local woodworker in my community and include high quality archival materials.

How the frames, the floated paper, the glass, the ink, the light of the environment, and the piece as a whole interact with each other is as important as how the viewer interacts with the art.  These relations are never complete, never exactly direct, as all interactions require some medium to occur.  We all float within these media, and sometimes, hopefully, encounter one another. 

Thank you for looking at this campaign.  I am looking to raise $3,000 to cover to cost of the 50 frames and a stretch goal of $1,500 to get high resolution scans of the entire series to be made into a beautiful art book complete with the ideas and concepts behind the work.  If you would like to contribute to this effort, please donate or share this campaign.  If you are able to donate, we have some unique rewards as a thank you for your support.

Risks and challenges

The risk in exhibiting this many pieces at one time is the cost of creating all 50 frames at the same time. There is also the expense of scanning such a large series. I have partnered with some amazing people locally to make this happen.

*I have a great woodworker in Summit, Oregon, the community I work and live, who I have been collaborating with to make these frames at as low a cost as possible while using high quality archival materials. There was a small set-back when the woodworker broke his hand, but I am happy to report his hand has healed nicely.

*I am also working with Paige at Pegasus in Corvallis, Oregon to includes museum quality UV protective glass so the drawings will remain safe. This glass is virtually glare free and the images look crystal clear.

*I have been working with Bill at SP&B in Salem, Oregon to get high resolution scans and to color match each drawing to get the best reproduction possible. The first few scans look great. We have run into some challenges with the white ink, but Bill is continuing to work on color correcting.

Without these collaborations and the donations from this campaign, this project could not happen. Thank you everyone for your support.

    Set of 4 Handmade Signed Cards of Oregon

    Each card is handmade and signed. The four cards include some of my most popular Oregon images including Mount Hood, a Grey Jay, Birch Trees and a Crow. These are all images that can be seen in and around my studio. As my studio is located at a slightly higher elevation, last year we were blessed to see a mated pair of Grey Jays visit our feeder. They usually live in the Mount Hood Territory, which from our area we see only at a distance, so this was a special siting. We are planning to keep the feeder full all winter in hopes to see them again.
