Here’s a little sampler size of some creative work. When my boys were young, Madison Magazine covered the whimsical work I did in their room. At that time, they shared a tiny bedroom, so I needed to make the best use of space. And of course, have fun doing it. The giraffe’s (also a growth chart) stomach chambers highlighted the 4 main food groups. Meat, candy, dessert and ice cream.
Artist Leslie Linsley featured my mother-in-law’s artful home in her book Decoupage. Lucky for me, she included a mention of my work as well!
In 2006, I was honored to be included in Cows on Parade in Madison, Wisconsin. Physicians Plus Insurance Corporation hired me to execute a concept developed by Peggy Frain (a local graphic designer). The four months I worked on that cow were so exciting! Getting that new, white fiberglass cow was like 1,000 Christmases, wrapped into one cold day in January.
I was also selected to be one of the few artists to create an original design for a medium-sized cow. That piece was bought in the silent auction for $3,000. With my large cow going for $10,000, I was thrilled to help, in some small measure, benefit the UW-Madison Childrens Hospital.
