Welcome to iMAGiNETHAT! Art Studio!  I hope you will come and explore my studio during the North Woods Art Tour on October 5th, 6th and 7th, 2017!

My art studio is #12 this year on the Northwoods Art Tour guide map located in the brochure.

To learn more about the 2018 Northwoods Art Tours go to http://www.northwoodsarttour.com

The studio began taking on a nautical theme once I began wrapping the metal support poles with nautical rope.  From that point on, the nautical and beach like atmosphere seemed to be the perfect theme to showcase my artwork.

The artwork showcased at the iMAGiNETHAT Art Studio ranges from abstract paper sculptures, charcoal drawings and original prints and collages to more realistic compositions of feathers, leaves and dragonflies.

There are original prints and mixed media that represent the more tech savvy personality. These compositions are created from segments of computer hardware and have titles that captures the essence of  the materials and/or process of which they are created from, for example; Netscape and Etched In Time.DSC_0106

If you love bears, I have some wonderful greeting cards, coasters, photographs and photographic books of  Kodiak bear cubs.

I can’t believe that it’s going to be my second year as a member of the NORTHWOODS Art Studio Organization!  The art studio has come a long way over the past few years!  It’s transformed from a dim and ugly space into a warm, inviting and vibrant studio for printmaking, offering art workshops and an ideal area to showcase my artwork!

It’s time to frame and hang new artwork and reorganize the studio for the 2017 NORTHWOODS Art Studio Tour.  Please stop in see what’s new!  To learn more about the NORTHWOODS ART TOUR go to the following link:   http://www.northwoodsarttour.com

The art studio couldn’t exist without help and support of my family! Especially my husband! Thanks for getting the lighting up to bright the space!

I’m always excited about answering questions a guest might have while visiting the studio!  There’s a story to share behind almost every piece of artwork I’ve created in the studio!

I’ve been working with this material for many years but it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I discovered it had the potential to be used as a piece of artwork and not just a collagraph plate.  As a collagraph plate the cork board is wonderful because it conforms under the pressure of the printing presses polished steal rollers.  So I’m excited to see what new discoveries I’ll make utilizing this material in the future.

If your interested in seeing the finished artwork, stop in at “iMAGiNETHAT! Art Studio on July 28,29 and 30th and October 6, 7 and 8th! Go to the following link to learn more about the 2017 NORTHWOODS ART TOUR    www.northwoodsarttour.com

The hot wire that’s been protecting the observation window located in the JP Adler Kodiak Bear Exhibit area have been removed!  About two months ago the hot wire was placed around all the observation windows to prevent Munsey and Boda from licking and eating the sealant placed around the new observation  windows.   Now that a new protective coating has been applied to the original  sealant the cubs are free to interact once again with all Wildwood Zoo guests.

I often wonder what is going through the minds of both the child and the Kodiak cub while they’re  sharing a hug.  This is Munsey sharing a hug with a young Zoo guest early Monday morning around 8:30 am.

The cubs love to interact with the zoo staff while they’re cleaning the glass of the observations windows.

Casandra ( pictured above ) informed me that a few weeks ago Munsey and Boda had found a raccoon in the Bear Woods.  Needless to say, the raccoon turn out to be an additional snack for the cubs that day.

Munsey  and Boda now weigh 400 to 423 pounds. The cubs are now 20 months old and Munsey  weighs in at 400 pounds, while Boda’s weight is 423 pounds. These photographs were taken on Monday October 2nd.
