Thank you for visiting Roseblade Art!

Let me introduce myself!

         My husband, Keith, and I live on five acres on the south end of  San Juan Island, Washington.  The local wildlife have granted us rights to share their land and we unintentionally augment their diet with our beautiful gardens!  Keith's guitar serenades entertain us all and when he plays, "How Much is that Doggy in the Window", our little dog, Bucky Bear,  actually howls along.  Definitely his favorite tune!

                  I would like to share a few photos of myself, our dog child, my studio, and the garden. 

                                          We are all the garden, constantly evolving!

               In my early twenties I began an  extensive foray into theatre.  I acted in and directed many dramas, comedies, musicals and staged radio dramas.   Designing costumes, and sets were part of every show I directed and a huge part of what I loved about the stage.   For me, the play was like a blank canvas on which I could turn my vision into a reality.  The experience opened me to a world of metaphor and archetypes that continue to inform my work. Theater can be a huge leap down the “rabbit hole," just like the visual arts.

       At the same time, I opened a boutique that I operated for over twenty five years.  Display, merchandising, and creating a specific atmosphere of sight, sound, and fragrance were an exciting challenge.  

       I believe all of these and other influences provided the genesis of my art that is as much about  narrative as it is about subject.   For me, every sculpture has a history waiting to be discovered.  Each character embodies their own story through costuming, gesture, and attitude.

       Art, directly and indirectly is a part of all of our lives.  Recognizing the turning points and the moments of inspiration is not always easy, but the reward comes as we open our heart and soul to the experience.
