Biography
Centripetal Satires    
While fine tuning and polishing my vertical and horizontal watercolor with paper cuts, the “Centripetal Satire” series emerged.  Putting my spin on the circle, I wrap familiar objects with irony to tell a fun story with a twist- I live for quiet cleverness. 

This series was born when, during my research, I was drawn to a PA German Valentine of very fine cutwork titled “Lovebird”; colorful birds in circular columns, completed by a schoolmaster in the early 1800’s (to compensate for their small wages, schoolmasters made and sold Frakturs, such as birth & marriage certificates).


Fine cutwork "Lovebird Valentine", William Johnson, Pennsylvania, 19th Century
