Welcome to Maple Brook Studio:
I opened Maple Brook Studio to the public in 1991. At that time the majority of my work was Chinese brush painting, pen & ink drawings, and oil paintings on canvas. Other works include stone sculpture, metal sculpture, colored pencil, and my birch series painted on textured papers. Between 2014 and 2020 my focus was on pyrography (wood-burning), however, I had to stop burning due to health concerns.
That’s when I found a new direction, cutting and painting on gourds. The more I work in this medium the more detailed and rather complicated my images become. Toward the end of 2022 I found a new direction with the gourds; adding an additional layer of dimensionality.
My work is far more exciting when viewed in person. I invite you to make an appointment to visit.
