I'm not a stink bug.
But my dog is.
You can regularly find me hunched over my desk, tweezers in hand, obsessively searching through magazines for the perfect color. My art is created by tearing magazines (mostly National Geographic) and gluing them together to form pictures that have mistakenly thought to be oil paintings.
Most of my subject matter includes soulful dogs and cows. However, any subject matter with high contrast and of colorful nature is fair game. My artwork has appeared in numerous shows in Colorado and Kansas and can be found in private collections across the U.S
Growing up on a dairy farm in NW Kansas, I have a fondness for the open skies and the outdoors. I now reside with husband, dogs and cat in Evergreen, CO. But don't be fooled- if there's open days on the calendar you'll find me sneaking back to hang out with my beloved bovines (now a herd of red angus).
Why Stink Bug Studio?
We adopted this crazy dog, Bella. Which ( the poor thing) took on about 40 different nicknames- one of them being Bug. When this dog is ornery she turns into a Stink Bug. If I'm tearing paper, you can find Bella beneath my feet. Stink Bug Studio only seemed appropriate.
