I am so excited to share that The Wolf Who Ate the Sky has been published by Heyday Books!
When my daughter Anna was 3.5 years old, we created this story during car rides to and from preschool. In telling it again and again, it grew into the story that is now in this book. My father, artist Charles Hobson, did a fabulous job illustrating and designing it. This 3-generation project is now on Amazon, heydaybooks.com, and in local bookstores. Signed copies will also be at my next Open Studio on April 25 & 26 in Muir Beach.
Here is a taste of the plot: "A very hungry wolf eats the sky, plunging the whole world into darkness, but a brave boy and a menagerie of animals are determined to bring back the light."
To learn more about the book and the illustrations in it, please visit Charles Hobson's web site.
Below is a very sweet video of Anna at 3.5 years old telling a version of the story. Enjoy!
I am so excited to share that my Artist Talk at Gallery 291 can now be seen online thanks to Steve Wynn at Bayside Entertainment. He did a beautiful job recording and editing it.
In this talk, I start with my photography background and how my graduate studies of Surrealism led me to work in mixed media. Then I share the stories, inspirations and techniques behind the six different series on view at Gallery 291 - from the layered collage of Mapping the Body and Milagros, to the sculptures of Bottle Dreams and the still lives of Sanctuary and Evocations. I conclude with my newest work, mixed media collages that are about reaching into the darkness and finding an unexpected gift or blessing.

I would love to know what you think.
Today I am sharing a few of my new pieces. I am so excited to have them be part of the Gallery 291 exhibit, opening this Saturday, October 18th at 6:30pm in Mill Valley, CA. For more details, please visit www.gallery291.net. If you are in the area, I hope you will get to see the show, which is up through the end of November.
