Still in the queasiness of garish colors, here is a detail of my artists’ book Keep Your Distance ©2002. The vivid colors draw you in while also signaling a warning, as in the natural world: bright colors could mean stay away or risk unpleasant consequences.This book contains a text on a long strip between two brightly colored thickly laminated covers of rag board. The text is a list of distance words beginning with Far off and ending with To the ends of the earth.

SECOND SIGHT is a 24 month project to revisit, reconnect, and share 30+ years of my own studio work (drawing, works on paper, artists books, installations) and featuring work, ephemera and  projects of other artists that have enriched my personal and working life over this time period.


Via weekly posts that move forward by linking some aspect of the previous post to the current one and using tags as a creative way to search the ongoing entries – Second Sight will grow into an alternative archive.


I invite you to join me at any and all points during this probably odd but hopefully compelling voyage.
