Stories We Tell…

Stories are not only written but are often told in the form of visual art, dance, theater, etc… My intaglio print “Family Album Hieroglyphics: Man, Full With His Memories” was recently accepted into the catalog for the WCA (Women’s Caucus for the Arts) show “STORIES WE TELL” in New York.

In the last week, the chaos and protests that have taken place in Egypt have kept our eyes locked on the TV for more news. Recently looters had broken in the Egyptian museum, and luckily not much was ransacked, unlike the looting done in Iraq during the invasion.

I was in Egypt a few years […]

Art and Tour de France

Linda biking in Corsica

One of my favorite past times is BIKING. I’m no racer like Lance Armstrong in the Tour de France, but I have done several difficult bike tours overseas and love climbing the Colorado mountains. When I’m not riding with others , I sometimes bring my camera and take photos that […]

Intaglio-Type Workshop I

The intense workshop took place at Don Messec’s studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where Don practices non-toxic printmaking to the T! Making art safely is […]
