Welcome to Maple Brook Studio:
I opened Maple Brook Studio to the public in 1991. At that time the majority of my work was pen & ink drawings and oil paintings on canvas. I painted in the Chinese brush style for close to twenty-two years. Other works include stone sculpture, metal sculpture, color 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 difficult my images become.
My work is far more exciting when viewed in person. I invite you to make an appointment to visit.
