October 2014 show at Blackfish Gallery

My show ‘Pieced Constructions’ is currently up at Blackfish Gallery for the month of October.  This is my third two-person show at Blackfish with my husband, Michael Knutson.  The show comes down November 1, so hurry on down!

Pieces in ‘Being Blackfish’

The first piece, a canvas construction called ‘Am I Blue?’, is on display in the April exhibit at Blackfish Gallery. The piece measures 88″ x 48″, and was created with oil paint on canvas strips sewn together. I included some detail photos of it in a previous post as a work in progress in my studio.

This month’s show also features 35 fish hanging in Blackfish’s front window space, which were created to celebrate Blackfish’s 35-year anniversary. My piece honors the styles of traditional Northwest Coast Indian art, and is a salmon sculpted out of cardboard and papier mâché and painted in acrylics.




‘RAT/TAR/ART’ appeared in Blackfish Gallery’s ‘Irony’ theme show during the month of February 2014. The piece consists of three panels, and was inspired by my daughter‘s system of critiquing works of art.

Current projects in my studio – Feb 2014

The first piece, ‘Am I Blue?’, is a pieced canvas construction that will be shown at Blackfish Gallery’s 35th anniversary show, “Being Blackfish”, in April 2014. The materials have been recycled from my piece ‘Deluge‘, which appeared at Blackfish in January 2013. The second piece, ‘Styx – Wall’, is also made from recycled materials, in this case from the original ‘Styx‘, shown in my one-person exhibit in 2011. The last piece, ‘Sewing Circles 2’, is a follow-up to the original ‘Sewing Circles‘, which was shown in June 2013.

New Work

Welcome to my New Work page, which features pieces that I’ve recently completed along with selected works in progress. I’m usually working on several pieces at a time, and once they’re ready to share I’ll post photos of them on this page.
