Indentations from Bariloche          
Sept 2019


Red Brick Art Center, Aspen CO

20” x 30”
mixed media on polyboard




These pieces are in response to my time and experiences in Bariloche, Argentina during my Aspen Sister City Artist Exchange in May 2019. Each piece celebrates something I learned from a studio visit, explored in conversation with an artist or was captured by visually.

Using familiar mixed media techniques that incorporate traditional printmaking these pieces explore new and unexpected mark making and impression techniques.  The content of the pieces is inspired directly by the natural physical landscape of the place as well as the profound impression the people and their artwork has left upon me and my personal exploration of creative expression. 

Thank you to the Red Brick Art Center for supporting the Aspen Sister Cities Artist Exchange Program. Artist Barbra Drausal was going to be here on exchange but suffered a last minute accident and couldn’t make the trip. We send her all our love and well wishes for quick recovery!

The series Impressions are in response to my time and experiences in Bariloche, Argentina during my Aspen Sister City Artist Exchange in May 2019. Each piece celebrates something I learned from a studio visit, explored in conversation with an artist or was captured by visually. Using familiar mixed media techniques that incorporate traditional printmaking these pieces explore new and unexpected mark making and impression techniques. I will forever be influenced by my time in Argentina, and the abundance of natural, scientific and artistic inspiration. Our hosts generosity of spirit and the new connections made will continue to have a profound impact on my personal exploration of creative expression.



March 2019



A few weeks ago I received a stellar phone call and invitation to participate in the Aspen Sister City Exchange with Bariloche Argentina as an the Artist.  Get busy livin'!  I traded in all our miles and can't wait to adventure, meet and make art with the amazing artist community ready to welcome me and my husband Andy.

The wonderful artist community in Bariloche is unfortunately a little tight on supplies due to pretty harsh economic crisis in Argentina. I am bringing down some supplies to donate to their artist collective and print studio. I am also hoping to develop some serious collaborative connections so we can help create channels for their art to be enjoyed locally in the Roaring Fork Valley.
